What is a Master in Environmental Sciences? For many people who are interested in a career in the environmental sciences, a master’s degree can open the door to a much wider range of employment opportunities and possibly a higher income as well. Environmental studies professionals must be skilled at conducting and analyzing research, and many master’s programs focus on helping students become proficient in these areas. The specific requirements will vary from one program to another, but often include original research projects and community collaboration projects. Many students will also be exposed to teaching during their graduate school experience, which prepares you for a teaching position if that is the career you hope to pursue.

The specific cost of a degree in the environmental sciences differs from university to university and from program to program. If you decide to pursue a degree abroad, that can also impact the total cost of the program. Identify the schools and programs that interest you most to get an idea of about how much it will cost.

Graduates from a Master in Environmental Sciences program can find employment in several different areas, including geology, water management, environmental engineering, sustainable energy and energy management, government and environmental policy, environmental technology, climate change and more. Many programs also offer exposure to biodiversity, conservation, law and policy so you can pursue a career that you are passionate about.
