    Hello everyone,

    I just graduated with a first in geography and I am now starting a MSc Extractive industries, the environment and sustainability. I was wondering if I would be qualified to become an environmental scientist, specifically for a mining company? My friends who were doing environmental science were sharing almost all of my modules so I know the course content is almost the same, but will employers only be looking for specifically an environmental science degree or will geography fit the bill?

    Thanks.

    IDK if you would be qualified to as an environmental scientist with just a geography degree-However many environmental consultancy firms want a degree in a relevant field so it shouldnt be too hard. But that MSc sounds like a great way into the industry.

    It would be a shame if I couldn't get a job as an environmental scientist; it's not my main ambition but it's a solid option to have as their seems to be many positions available with mining companies. From my experience, my degree was almost identical to environmental science considering the modules I chose. However I didn't cover any biology so that would be my limitation.

    Yes the msc sounds great, it's the only course of its type in the UK so I'm hoping it will favoured by employers, it would want to be for 10 grand :O

    Thanks for your input.
