    Where will this take me?


    You’ll have the skills to work in the growing fields of climate risk and environmental consulting so you can become a working climate scientist, or combine your learnings to apply climate knowledge to a broad range of occupations. Work in areas relevant to climate science and a changing climate can be diverse, including:

    • Energy: engineering, urban design and manufacturing can help companies adapt, cities to expand and people to live in sustainable ways.
    • Economics: including financial risk measurements and business management to help companies adapt.
    • Finance: banking, insurance, actuarial management are all related to developing adaptable technologies and sustainable cities.
    • Government: policy and priorities are going to be a defining factor in our ability to adapt and battle climate change.
    • Transport: help people participate in a society that values our climate and is accessible.
    • Research: we need to understand how we got here and research what we can do about our climate future.

    Your future job title could include:

    • Climatologist
    • Climate Scientist
    • Climate Policy Analyst
    • Environmental Consultant
    • Resource Manager
