Courses are commonly taken by students pursuing personal development or additional education in their fields of choice. Courses can be found in varied formats ranging from short-term intensive programs to online courses lasting several months. Students frequently find themselves better prepared to take on more advanced job responsibilities after completing courses.

What is a course in environmental study? An educational course in this field typically covers several aspects of the subject matter, including specialty topics such as environmental science, international environmental issues, conservation, ecological economics, agriculture and environmental justice, journalism and law. Classes may also cover marine policy, natural resource development, political ecology, environmental statistics and problem analysis, biodiversity and energy markets. The focus of each course could range from local topics to issues that affect multiple countries and economies.

Throughout their careers, students may find ways to apply many of the skills they learn while taking environmental study courses. They can learn to take multiple data points to develop strategic positions regarding complicated issues. Many also learn presentation skills and improve their critical reasoning abilities.

Courses vary in length depending on the intended subject matter, which can affect the cost of attendance. The manner in which content is delivered also impacts tuition and fees, which vary between universities. Online classes often have different fee structures than courses offered on campus.

An environmental study course can lead to different types of employment opportunities. Some graduates choose positions such as researcher, ecology specialist, marine biology associate, environmental project manager, geological analyst, conservation technician, environmental engineer or energy consultant. Students preferring careers in public service may work as environmental affairs coordinators, ecological compliance auditors, permitting administrators, inspectors or safety technicians.

Universities frequently offer traditional courses and those that can be conveniently accessed online by students located around the world. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
