ENVS alumni can keep in
Since its foundation in 1984, the program has graduated +800 students. Our alumni include effective practitioners and advocates for the environment in policy, science, medicine, law, finance, industry, government, non-profit organizations and academia. The Environmental Studies Program provides a solid multidisciplinary understanding of current environmental issues, hands-on experience, and important career advice.
The ENVS Program in recent graduates' words
"The professors were all so passionate! It was inspirational."
"The idea of critical thinking is pushed: to think about environmental problems through different lenses and attempt to come to a solution that incorporates them all."
"The ENVS Program does an extraordinarily good job communicating with its students. I love being on the e-list and getting notified of events, internships, jobs, opportunities, etc."
"It helped me realize that there are many possible career paths from Environmental Studies."
"I loved the flexibility and interdisciplinary of this major; I took classes in Economics, Biology, Chemistry, CEE, UEP, English, etc."
"I really feel that this major helped me to understand environmental issues and gain a strong scientific background for future work in the field. The classes were interesting, and I think the information I learned through them will be useful throughout my career."
"Very relevant to what I would like to do, good community of people, some really good classes. Classes that were "requirements" surprised me with how much I liked them."
Where are our alumni today?
Our graduates have proven to be highly attractive in the job market. For example, within a year of graduation 27/29 students of the class of 2014 was either employed, going to graduate school or following a structured volunteering program (2 students were not found), 74% of which were employed in an area directly or indirectly related to the environment. These data show that a high proportion of our students choose to and are able to work in an environmentally-related fields with the skills developed during their time at Tufts.
