Hey guys! I have a master's degree in marine environmental management, and was just wondering if there are any other marine people here :) I'm finishing my degree very soon and just generally curious to know what people end up working in with these degrees, or what they want to work in, and where. I live in Scotland, so a lot of marine stuff going on there, but if I can't find a job there, I'll go wherever I must to follow my passion. Anyways, looking forward to haring from you guys.

The job prospects upon completing a degree in marine environmental management are actually quite extensive. The most common careers that graduates choose to purse are environmental consultancy and fishery observers. If you wish to go down a more academic route then a degree of this kind is also suitable for pursuing a degree in teaching and even international banking. In most cases graduates who choose to fully pursue their career path will begin their journey as research or field assistants, taking on the responsibilities of conducting environmental and mammal surveys amongst other things.

I’m glad you’d say that J funnily enough it didn’t look too much like it when I started my studies, but times have changed. Yes I know there’s a lot of consultancy jobs – don’t know if I’d like it too much but of course I’d have to try to be sure of it. I am personally more interested in a research path, so field assistant or research assistant is quite tempting for me. And my passion and specialisation (wrote my master’s thesis on it) are marine mammals, so even more happy you mentioned that too. But I am guessing you live in the US, right?

I know prospects there are slightly different. And I know how hard it is to come work in the US as a foreigner, even though I am French. I often see marine mammal job adverts in the US, and they all always state that you have to be a US citizen to be able to apply. It’s quite frustrating really, I have all the qualifications a US citizen could have of not more. Seems like everyone wants to go there since they can make it so hard to live there.
