Earth and Environmental Scientists Impact Our World

Earth and environmental scientists are problem solvers, addressing issues related to energy & water resources, natural disasters, and environmental protection. Knowledge of earth and environmental sciences, the scientific study of Earth's dynamic processes and history, will be key to achieving sustainability in the 21st century.

As an earth and environmental scientist, you can work as an environmental scientist, hydrologist, engineering geologist, computer cartographer/GIS analyst, or even a planetary geologist studying planets and moons to understand the origin of our solar system.

If you are a high schooler who is interested in the earth and environmental sciences, check out our GETUP program here!
