Is it worth it to study another 3 years at community college for a civil engineering degree after studying 3 years for a bs of physical geography and environmental science?
What I’m studying now (Bachelors of Science majoring in Geography and Environmental Science), does not particularly have a wide job market from where i am residing (in the Southern hemisphere, we’re a small country). Many firms here search for graduate civil/environmental engineers and geologists, rather than environmental scientists and geographers.
If you’re able to evaluate my options for next year 2018, that would be very much appreciated.
I am wondering whether or not i should pursue further studies in honours for Geography (an extra year), thus bringing my study to a total of 4 years, perhaps more for masters in the future. I would be more interested to complete honours in Environmental Science however, my university does not provide it. This however still will not guarantee a job at the end.
Taking a year off and working part-time for the job that i have now (sales assistant) while searching for a full-time job that is in relation to my degree. (It will be quite difficult finding an environmental job and entering this job market, especially with little to no experience in the field). And then perhaps coming back after one year to study postgrad/honours in Geography.
Taking a year off and do as above, but when i do return to study, i will attempt a 3 year degree in civil engineering at a community college, thus totalling my study time to a whooping 6 years to study 2 degrees.
Just like to add that my final goal would be perhaps environmental consultancy, but i am quite flexible as my life is a blur and i am not particularly passionate about anything.
Thank you very much in advance to any advice.
