Environmental Science - Natural Science, A.A.
Are You Concerned About Our Influence on the Environment
Are you concerned about our influence on the environment and would like to be part of the solution? Do you often wonder how we could do a better job monitoring the environment and protecting it? Then environmental science is for you! Students majoring in environmental science get jobs in research, industry, government and education. Some people focus on monitoring the environment and work at places like the US EPA lab on Gulf Breeze. Others focus on environmental clean-up and work for industry or government agencies. Others are more concerned with educating the public and may work at parks or outdoor education centers like Biophilia in Niceville. No matter what you decide to do, you can get started at Gulf Coast State College!
Why Choose a Career in Environmental Science?
Obviously we live in an industrialized society and the choices we make impact our environment in many different ways. Unfortunately, industrialized societies pollute the environment. How can we live more sustainable? A career in environmental science will help you answer that question. Since jobs are so varied, go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics to find information about salaries.
