Career Resources

Environmental Studies students enjoy a strong career support system with job postings, opportunities to meet employers, resources and advising available throughout the year.

Students find that many jobs listed as environmental often focus on education, advocacy or policy; however, graduates successfully pursue a wide range of career paths. We encourage students to explore their own interests and strengths as they progress through the degree. From this strong foundation, successful careers are made.


Below you will find a sampling of relevant resources that may guide you in finding a job and exploring career paths.
