* What kind of jobs can I get with an Environmental Studies major?

* What classes/experiences will best prepare me for an environmental career?

Explore different career pathways in Environmental Studies through this one-hour workshop co-facilitated by Joe Kobayashi (Program on the Environment) and Kimberly Petersen (UW Career Center). Learn strategies to explore environmental career pathways (What are they? How much do jobs in this field pay? Who can I ask questions to?). Hear from environmental professionals on a panel of alumni applying their skills in a variety of fields. The workshop will be followed by a chance to informally network with the panel members and other students over pizza.
