Careers & Alumni
From campus to workplace
Graduates of Trent’s School of the Environment are career-ready and job-ready. Our graduates end up pursuing careers in the public sector (working for municipal, regional, provincial, federal, and international agencies); the private sector (employed by companies in the forestry and other resource industries and in environmental consulting firms); and with a variety of non-profit organizations, including many highly respected environmental agencies. Some find opportunities to apply what they’ve learned at Trent in far-reaching and unexpected ways, transitioning to careers in architecture, law, and medicine! Our graduates are also well positioned to take full advantage of new and emerging career opportunities in the environmental field, such as ecological restoration (bringing polluted or degraded ecosystems back to health) and carbon management (finding ways to reduce our impact on the climate).
