What Can I Do with an Earth Sciences Degree?
Earth Science students learn to use limited amounts of data to make inferences about the world around them. Many employers find skills learned in the Earth Sciences to be useful in settings where the complexities of “real world” situations often require analysis and action based on limited information. Traditionally, job opportunities in Earth Sciences include positions in academia, government, environmental consulting, petroleum and mining. Many of these industries have an aging work force and are engaged in a long term hiring trend to replace retirees.
