Environmental Studies

The field of Environmental Studies is extremely diverse and includes career opportunities in both the biological and social sciences. Employment can be found in such areas as biological consulting, ecosystem and habitat restoration, environmental field or lab technology, environmental health, environmental management, natural resources, land-use planning, business, energy, waste management, pollution control, law and environmental administration—all of which require knowledge of environmental issues and the functioning of ecosystems

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 15% growth in employment opportunities for environmental scientists and specialists through 2022. Growth in this field stems, in part, from heightened public interest in the hazards facing the environment as well as the increasing demands placed on the environment by population growth.
