Environmental Consultant/Project Manager
The environmental field is growing - what was once a small field several decades ago has steadily grown as the connection between the environment, human health, and the economy has become more clear. There will be more jobs in the future. Wages are commensurate with education, experience, and job type. The current, hot topic is "resilience" (to flooding, and other natural disasters). However, all of the core environmental areas will remain relevant and viable for a career (water, air, waste, etc.). I recommend you select a traditional science major, then earn a masters with an environmental focus. Look at job postings that are of interest to you and the lists of prerequisites; you will notice a focus on traditional science backgrounds, even in more "environmental" focused positions. Best of luck.
