Environmental Governance is an interdisciplinary program, which means that graduates will enter the workforce or pursue further studies with a range of knowledge and skills from a variety of subject fields. With a strong foundation in geography, political science and economics, there is a range of opportunities post graduation. Some employment opportunities include: consultation in the private sector; work within a non-governmental organization; government positions; and many more. Post-graduate schooling could include thesis or non-thesis based masters programs, law school, masters of business administration and masters of public administration amongst many others.
Undoubtedly this is a difficult period for graduates as employment opportunities are fewer, or at least harder to secure (see link). In Geog 4210: Environmental Governance, one session is formally dedicated to this challenge and to exploring options after completion of the degree. The most recent presentation slides are attached here, and include a number of useful links.
Please feel free to schedule an appointment with a program counsellor for more specific assistance.
