Employment needs and technologies within environmental fields are undergoing rapid changes. Students are likely to transition through diverse employment opportunities during their careers. Career opportunities in government, industry, and education are discussed by visiting and hearing directly from professionals employed in diverse careers, including: broadcasting; air quality; operational (federal and military), road and fire weather forecasting; data science; and climate science. Discussions of what is expected of scientists in the work place are presented: ethics and misconduct; field safety; communicating effectively with your peers and the public; and basic concepts of what is required to complete work-related reports and research responsibly. The roles of scientists to communicate information related to topics such as climate change, air quality, and land use policies affecting water availability and wildfires in the urban-wildland interface are also presented.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
