Learning Center Experience
By Teri Ard, Faculty Member, Environmental Policy Programs
“I don’t want to protect the
environment. I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need
worked in the field for more than 25 years now, I can tell you what I enjoy. I
like knowing that every day at work is going to be different; the environmental
field is constantly changing and this means the related projects and skills are
transforming as well. If you are someone like me, who enjoys challenges and
continuous learning, this could be a great career choice.
While I am proud of

aspects of my job that allow me to work with people. I enjoy describing to
groups or individuals why regulations exist, how to comply with them, and how
the regulatory process works.
Do you like
working in an office setting, punching numbers into complicated excel
spreadsheets or are you the type of person who prefers to be outdoors and on
your feet? The environmental policy field may offer opportunities for both
types of personalities as well as a wide variety of educational backgrounds.

pursue a career as an advocacy manager or policy communicator. On the other
hand, an engineering degree could help in the pursuit of a technical career
such as environmental manager or environmental planner.
important to consider the environmental issues that you are most passionate
about. Greenhouse gases (GHG) and global warming, alternative energy, forestry
practices, water conservation, and agricultural practices are just a few of the
current issues being addressed by those with a career in environmental policy.
If you have the drive to combat even one of these issues, an environmental
policy career could be one worth pursuing.
