Some of the most important issues facing our society today including climate change, sustainability of natural resources and our understanding of the anthropogenic effect on our dynamic planet require an Earth Science perspective. This degree is designed to provide the background for enthusiastic students to successfully pursue careers investigating the causes and finding solutions for these important issues.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor and statistics projects that jobs in the field of Environmental Earth Science are projected to increase by 19% between 2010-2020, which is much higher than other occupations. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, beginning salary offers in May 2010 for graduates with bachelor's degrees in an environmental science averaged $61,700 a year.
