Bachelor's program graduates can become environmental scientists at government agencies, businesses, and nonprofits. A master's degree will open up environmental science research positions, as these programs require an intensive research project. The doctorate degree is the usual requirement for employment as a college environmental science professor; other PhD-holders can become policymakers, consultants, or administrators in environmental protection agencies.
