What can you do with an environmental science degree?

There are so many opportunities when you study environmental science like being horticulturist (expert in garden cultivation and management), environmental consulting, working in education, environmental engineering, surveying, the recycling industry, the sustainability sector, even water quality and waste management.

Typical employers include local authorities, environmental protection agencies, government departments, environmental monitoring organisations, consultancies, nature conservation organisation and charitable trusts such as Natural England. Of course, these lots of other careers too such as working the utilities sector for water companies, surveying, communication and environmental education, including environmental research like all of our PhD students.

Even putting specific roles aside pursuing an environmental science related degree broadens your skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, considering scientific and an ethical perspective and research skills including analysis and data management. You may also gain lab and field skills but even without stepping foot outside or into a lab environmental science can open up a world of opportunities and career paths.
