Careers

Wherever an industry affects the environment, our graduates are valued and have an excellent record in gaining employment. In the public sector, opportunities exist from research and regulatory bodies like the Environment Agency, through to the armed forces. Meanwhile, private sector industries, including civil engineering, environmental consultancy, mining and construction, demand the skills of Lancaster's high-calibre graduates. The breadth of this degree, plus transferable skills in quantitative analysis, ensures that Lancaster's Earth and Environmental Scientists have a wide variety of career or further research options. Many graduates take their learning to PhD level to enhance their specialist knowledge and skills for example, recent graduates have chosen to study Exploration Geophysics.
