The multidisciplinary nature of the Environmental Studies program provides graduates with a comprehensive foundation from which to embark on a diversity of careers in the environmental arena and also provides an excellent foundation for further academic studies at the graduate level. Careers and graduate-level academic programs related to the fields of communications, environmental impact assessment, environmental law, and environmental policy and planning are all attainable for Environmental Studies graduates. Depending on student preferences and choice of elective courses, other post graduate options include further work in geography, geographical information systems (GIS), marine and coastal area studies, and sustainable development. Through involvement in practical outdoor experiences during their studies, Environmental Studies graduates will be in a position to improve their outdoor skills and assess the impacts of recreational activities on the environment. This experience and training will lay the foundation for graduate-level studies in outdoor recreation and for careers in outdoor recreation management, adventure tourism development and related fields which are important to the future of Newfoundland and Labrador’s economy.
