    Is a BA in Environmental studies useful today, what jobs are open?

    Can you transfer into a Masters program if so what?


    Thanks

    I think you may be going about this the wrong way.

    Figure out what you're passionate about first of all. Once you have that in hand, do some research and find out what careers out there appeal to you based on your passion. Then, find people in that career. Email them, call them, do some internships, see what it's like and how they got there, then, go with that.

    Agree with this completely. If you really like the idea of environmental studies then go for it (after some careful research). Otherwise, you are going to end up in a field with loads of jobs, but none that you enjoy.

    That's part of the problem I don't know of any jobs in the field, and I don't know what Masters you can get if you have a Ba in Environmental Studies.

    I always have been interested in Biology, and Archeology.

    There were too many Philippinos in the program. Ugh, they're constantly ruining his life!

    Why don't you talk to your school counselor?
