Environmental Studies alumni are proactively working to build a sustainable future. 

Our alumni work with city and county governments, federal agencies, private consulting firms, education and communication entities, and nonprofit organizations. Others continue their education through graduate studies in fields such as public affairs, natural resource management, environmental and public health, and education.
