Our students come from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds. We have had licensed architects and engineers, accomplished chefs and authors, and students with undergraduate degrees in various environmental and physical sciences, social sciences, education, design, and the humanities, enroll in our program over the years. Because environmental issues impact all aspects of our society, and because our program does not lead to a professional degree with specific employment opportunities, our graduates find themselves in a wide variety of employment sectors. Many have chosen to build on previous professional and educational experiences, while others have decided to pursue different opportunities upon completion of our program.
While the career opportunities available to graduates are broad, and influenced by other professional and educational experiences, there are a number of common pathways which are emerging for our alumni:
Non-Profit Sector. A number of graduates have pursued opportunities to advance sustainability with various non-profit organizations working locally and abroad. Recent employment of our graduates has included:
Public Sector. MSRS graduates have found opportunities for public service in various positions, including:
Doctoral-Level Studies. A number of graduates have also decided to pursue additional degrees, particularly at the doctoral level. Alumni have applied and been accepted to a variety of institutions for the purposes of Ph.D. studies in very diverse fields which build upon their regenerative studies education, including anthropology, marine ecology, architecture, and planning.
