Career Paths

An environmental science degree can prepare students for a wide range of careers in industry, government, and education.  Many labor market experts predict that environmental industries will be a major source of new jobs in the next decade.

Master of Science graduates are working around the country at consulting firms, state and federal agencies (NH Department of Environmental Services, US Geologic Survey, US Forest Service), non-profit watershed associations (Squam Lakes Association, Newfound Region Lake Association), land trusts, and others have continued their education in PhD programs.
