The Earth and Environmental Sciences program provides a gateway to a wide range of different career paths that reflect the diversity of Earth and Environmental Sciences. Career prospects are excellent, as there is an increasing demand for graduates with a science-based background in Earth and Environmental Sciences, especially with skill-sets that include practical field and lab work, numerical and analytical skills coupled with a sound knowledge in geochemistry, geology, oceanography, geophysics and/or data sciences. An understanding and appreciation of the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the Earth and Environmental sciences is also greatly valued by both academia and industry.
Graduates of the Earth and Environmental Sciences program at Jacobs University can choose from a broad range of careers in academia and in industry, for example in the exploration and management of natural resources such as fresh water, fossil fuels and minerals on land and in the oceans, or in research at universities and various State-, NGO- or privately-funded research facilities. Possible careers also include high-school and college teaching, environmental consulting, protection and management, work in science journalism and publishing or in the geo- and eco-tourism industry. Since positions in industry and academia often require a MSc degree, the modules and courses in the Earth and Environmental Sciences program also aim to prepare students for further studies at graduate schools.
