What is a PhD in Environmental Sustainability? It is an advanced program designed for those who wish to advance their knowledge of the natural sciences and help the environment through sustainability. This program may require students to work in the field conducting practical research to use as part of a dissertation. In addition to hands-on learning, there may be additional coursework for students to complete, such as climatology, international development and qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.

After completing the PhD, graduates should have specialized skills to find a rewarding career and be helpful in the community. As with most PhD graduates, they should also have highly developed research, communications, organizational and analytical-thinking skills.

A variety of factors can affect the overall cost to obtain a PhD. Some may include where the school is located and how much time a student invests in the program. For a full understanding, students should contact schools for more information.

Career options for graduates with a PhD in Environmental Sustainability can vary. Some may wish to work as a researcher for a government agency searching for viable renewable energy resources to help the planet, while others may work as a health and safety technician in an occupational field. Other careers can include climate-change policy makers, professors, program managers and scientists. Graduates should have no problem finding work if they are open to working for a variety of industries.
