Gary’s Answer

With a degree in environmental science, with an emphasis on the natural environment you might pursue work as a fish biologist. This includes government work, and working for an environmental consulting firm. As a fish biologist I have worked for a consulting company; tribal, federal, city, and state governments. My work has included managing fisheries, operating fish hatcheries, working on hydropower projects, working on water supply projects, wind power projects, pipeline projects, a Superfund site, and endangered species act regulation and implementation.
I hope that helps,

Hi ayuni!

Environmental science is a very broad field and provides a whole host of interesting opportunities. Some of the careers with an environmental science degree include environmental scientist, environmental engineer, and environmental lawyer. There are so many opportunities in environmental science that I think it is possible for you to not only find a career, but a great career. This is because along with a great job you will have something you can be passionate about. A career you have interest in and are passionate about makes all the difference in the world.

You can choose a specialization within environmental science, such as Marine Biologist or Oceanographer, which will help determine your career path.

Here's the list or Environmental Careers:
Agricultural Engineer
Marine Biologist
Molecular Biologist
Wildlife Biologist

You can start with this list by picking which careers you think you might be interested in and simply do further research.

I hope this helps!!
