Is it possible to become an environmental consultant with a Geography/GIS degree?

Hi all. I’m currently a junior in college studying Geography (BS). I really enjoy working outdoors and would love to have a career that focuses on the environment and GIS. I love GIS, but I can’t see myself working on a computer for the rest of my life. While I was looking at potential careers, I came across the job of an Environmental Consultant. Would this be a realistic job for a geographer? Have any of you landed a career in the environmental industry?

Environmental Geography?

Hi, I’m looking at apply to MSU next fall as an in state transfer student and the Environmental Geography program seems really a interesting as my current major is Environmental Science but I’m really more interested in Geography/Urban Design. I’m aware that MSU also has an Urban Planning major, and I’m honestly open to both of these, but am just wondering if there is anyone here who has majored/is currently majoring in one of these that could give me some more insight on these programs. Thanks!

Looking for Physical and Environmental Geography Majors

I'm currently a chemistry specialist and I'm thinking of switching to a double major in phys. and environmental geography major along with the chem major. I'd love to get some more insight into how these courses are organized and how they compare to typical chem courses if possible. Would love to talk to someone in the program (third/fourth year/grad students) via chat or email. Think of it as a virtual coffee chat!

[university] environmental studies vs geography

hi i’m interested in both nus env studies and geography but i’m not too sure which one is more suited for me. i looked at the modules for both courses and i really like the human geog ones for geography, and also the env ones from env studies. after uni i was thinking of either doing teaching, doing urban planning or doing something related to sustainability. which course would be more suited for me?

also my parents are really worried about the career prospects for both geog and env studies. is it really not worth it to take any of these 2 courses?

Is my degree recognizable in Germany? Environmental Studies & Geography double major BA

Hi! I'm planning to apply to a masters program in Germany, and I'm trying to formulate my plan right now. I am at an H+ university in the USA and I am completing a double major in Geography and Environmental Studies (I am completing both majors, but I will only get one degree, a BA). I checked Anabin and saw that I am attending an H+ university in the USA, but did not see either of my major programs there and I am feeling frustrated at the thought that neither of the two programs I am completing will be recognized.

Gillings School Master of Science for Environmental Science sand Engineering or Masters in Geography

Sorry about the previous post, I didn’t want it to come off as a chance me, as I have a year or so before I even would go to grad school. I’m trying to figure out how these programs are. Like if there’s anything you’d change, or general stuff that applies to all students. I’ve never knew UNC as a school in Atmospheric Sciences, so also is there anyone in the Air Pollution and Climate Change discipline that was maybe a Meteorology or Atmospheric Science Major in undergrad that could tell me how you’d major translated into grad school?

Also, can you apply to both programs at the same time and then choose after which program you’ll ultimately want to pursue? TIA!

Geography: Environmental & Resource Management v. Environmental Studies: Environmental Planning

I am trying to choose between Geography and Environmental Studies as a major! On one hand, if I pick Geography I can graduate early and I don't have to take Chem or the 7+ courses they require. Geography only has 10 courses while Envi has 17- which is crazy. Their curriculums are relatively similar becuase the Envi core classes for specialization are just all geography classes. However, my hinderences is that, to major in Geography, I would have to do GIS and cartography which is not exactly something I am super invested in and seems super difficult. Any comments on this? Please help! Thank you! You can find all the requirements for both majors here:

Geograpy,BA Track 3:https://www.binghamton.edu/geography/undergraduate/tracks.html

Envi, BA-Environmental Planning:https://www.binghamton.edu/environmental-studies/undergraduate/ba-requirements.html

The Envi classes do seem cooler than the Geog but I am looking for more insight!!

B.S. or M.S. in Environmental Engineering with B.A. in Environmental Geography? And Does ABET or PE matter?

Hey all,

I am hoping to go back to school for Environmental Engineering. My undergrad was a B.A. in Environmental (Geology/ Fluvial Geomorphology) Geography with Remote Sensing/GIS. I basically need a year of levelling coursework before I can go into a Master's program for EE.

I have also realized that most colleges don't not want students who already have a 'pseudo' STEM Bachelor's to get another one but provided my background I am not sure a Master's makes sense...?

Masters Route:

1 year- levelling coursework (intro Chem, Physics, Math)

1-2 year- M.S. Environmental Engineering (thesis or Professional track)

Bachelors Route:

4 year- B.S. Environmental Engineering

I have also looked into ABET and have found that most colleges only accredit the B.S. and not M.S. programs. That being said I have also heard that PE may be only accrediting individuals with a M.S. in the future so I am not sure if this will impact me in trying to find a job or not in the future.

I would greatly appreciate any insight into Environmental Engineering, academia and work profession wise, I have only really been exposed within the realm of waste water management and public works.

Thanks!

[Uni] Choosing between NUS FASS Geography and NTU Environmental Earth Systems Science (E2S2)

Hey everyone, hope you guys are safe and healthy during this CB period :) I am a recent JC graduate who is currently holding offers from both NUS FASS Geog and NTU E2S2 (I'm currently considering the Society and Earth Systems specialisation), and I would like to have some advice on which one I should choose!

Some background about myself: I was in the Arts stream in JC, did pure sciences in secondary school but I didn't particularly enjoy them, neither was I good at them. I have been interested in a career related to Geography, which include but are not limited to urban planning in private companies (like Surbana Jurong), energy-related (e.g. green energy, petroleum) careers, research, and I don't mind working in consultancy/analytics roles. As far as I understand, popular career choices by graduates of both courses are public sector jobs and teaching, both of which aren't amongst my top choices because 1) I'm not a Singapore Citizen so the prospects of working in the SG government may be quite slim and 2) I don't think I'm suited for and interested in joining the teaching profession.

I have also heard about how a more generalist degree in Geography may not be as favourable in the job market because it may not be specialised enough for employers. Yet at the same time, I am not sure if I should choose E2S2 because, as mentioned above, I'm not good at the sciences and am afraid that I may not be able to cope with the rigour of the science courses, especially after losing touch for 2 whole years :( (specifically, I'm alright with bio but I highly doubt I would enjoy highly intensive physics and chem modules!

Other things which may influence my decision would include the culture of the school (and by extension university), research and internship opportunities, and the workload for each course.

If there are any misconceptions made in this post, please correct me and I apologise! Any help or advice would be appreciated! Thank you so much for reading :)

What are the best jobs I can get with a Double Major: BA in Geography; BA in Environmental Studies (with GIS Certification)

I am interested in jobs that involve working outdoors, I have considered GIS Technician/Surveying, State/Federal Park Service, Cartography, Ecology/Biology, and different types of environmental protection/cleanup. I am looking to have a decent paying career that I would get to spend some or most of my time interacting with nature or going to new places. I should also mention I am taking various biology courses and that is my main focus in my Env. Studies degree.

I am open to advice for changes/ect. I am a sophomore in university now, and I am just trying to find motivation to follow this passion. I love maps, outdoors, cities, cultural geography, ect. but it is hard for me to stay motivated when I get in my head that I might end up not finding a use for my degree.
