Environmental studies provides direct access to career opportunities in the private or public sector or gives the basis for further education. Although a second major, graduate school or professional school may be required, environmental studies prepares for an appreciation of careers in air, water and land resource management, impact assessment and management of municipal and industrial wastes, environmental economics, law or journalism, public policy, environmental science or other sciences.
 
Students planning to seek employment following graduation are urged to accept a co-op or internship experience. Those planning to attend graduate school prior to seeking employment are encouraged to accept such an experience. All majors must take the Graduate Record Examination general portion and a subject portion related to their elective emphasis.
