Opportunities in Environmental Careers. VGM Career Horizons Series.
Fanning, Odom
A wide variety of environmental careers, their educational requirements, places of employment, growth and future potential are examined. A discussion of the new environmental era characterized by a joining of environmental education, science, and management in an interdisciplinary, integrated, and involved approach to environmental concerns forms a background for the investigation into different careers. Representative environmental studies programs at a range of colleges and universities are described. Careers in science, environmental health, resources and recreation, and land use and human settlements are discussed. Comments indicate that scientists and engineers are most in demand but non-science specialists and generalists are in growing demand. Appendices provide resource information about citizen organizations, publications, and federal agencies. (DC)
