Environmental Science Degrees: New Jersey Career Colleges

Career College: New Jersey Environmental Science Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in New Jersey offering Environmental Science degrees. If you're passionate about protecting the environment, consider earning an environmental science degree.

Attending a New Jersey college will put you in close proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, two world-class cities. New Jersey itself is a much more affordable alternative to New York, with it's relatively peaceful and crime-free towns and small cities. But New Jersey is not all city life: even today, nearly a quarter of the state is farmland, producing the renowned Jersey tomatoes as well as table vegetables and fruits of all kinds. Time out of the classroom can be well spent at New Jersey's 127 miles of Atlantic coastline, with some of the broadest beaches on the Eastern Seaboard.

New Jersey Career Colleges: Environmental Science Degrees

Many employers require a bachelor's degree as the minimum education requirement for a career in natural resources and conservation. While there is no formal education requirement in some states or with some employers, the chances of securing employment is much higher if you do carry a degree or diploma.

In addition to specific training for your career specialty, it is recommended that you include science, mathematics, communications and computer science in your education. With the basic training and courses mastered, you can specialize in forest resource management, urban forestry or wood technology, among others.

Natural resources and conservation workers manage forests, lakes and streams to protect them from environmental damage. You may be called upon to plant seedlings, survey and map forest areas, or have experience to develop educational programs. You need to be aware that some conservationists need to work in isolated areas for long periods of time without direct supervision. There will be times, however, when teamwork is essential to achieving desired results. You should also anticipate that the jobs in this industry could be physically demanding, requiring heavy lifting.

Almost a third of natural resources and conservation workers are self-employed. As a qualified natural resources and conservation worker, you can contract your services to almost any company or government agency. No matter whom you work for, though, your employer will expect a strict adherence to company values and confidentiality laws.

If you enjoy working outside alone, and like the idea of protecting our nation's natural resources, then you should consider training for a career in natural resources and conservation.
