    Hey! So, I have a passion for saving the environment, obviously if this is my desired career but I also have a passion for the humane farming of animals and I was wondering if I could tie the two in? Like, I know I could only do so much but I want to make a change in how animals are farmed and the impact they have on our environment so I'm curious if I could make the two work together. Thanks!

    Hi! I am making a career change and would love to hear your suggestions. I have recently become intrigued with Sustainability-environmental concerns, policy, etc. I already have a B.s in Interior Design, but I have a knack for operations, safety, and the built-environment. Which degree would be best? Environmental, Safety, & Health or Environmental Engineering. Eventually, I would like to have my own business in consulting... Thank you so much, in advance for your feedback. Erica M.

    Hi Kristin Malosh, My name is Cruz and I realized a few years working toward law school that I didn't want the career of an attorney or paralegal. My entire coursework prior was in preparation for it and I suddenly understood that this field was not for me. So I reevaluated my position and decided I needed to change careers and do something I do enjoy, eventually figuring out that environmental engineering was the better fit for me. I want to help improve my environment, utilize creativity ...

    Hey Kristin, I'm currently working on getting my AA in a community college. I recently became interested in a career in Environmental Engineering but I have a few fears. I have always been naturally inclined to social sciences and the arts so pursuing math sciences are a bit of a challenge for me. I basically want to know if you have met people with the same situation as me succeed in Environmental Engineering. Any tips and pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Hello Kristin! I noticed you went to Michigan State, I too am a fellow Spartan! I just started my freshmen year this past fall. Right now I'm currently a business major, but I'm seriously considering majoring in biosystems engineering just like you.

I know if I apply myself I can get good grades in my challenging math courses, but it's just not something I am naturally good at. I'm seriously worried this could ...

    Hello! I am possibly interested in environmental engineering as a career, but I'd rather get a more general biology degree as an undergraduate so I can explore my options. Would I have to get a masters in environmental engineering after that if I decided I wanted to pursue the career, or would I just need some type of certification?
