|MadSci Network: Environment & Ecology|
Tiffany, I am a chemist who's had several environental jobs from the analysis side. One of the better technicians i have worked with had an English degree and one or two science courses. She was inquisitive, thoughtful and interested. A gifted technical writer, who understood procedures i wrote better than some of my fellow chemists, also was an English major who liked science. Yes, there are opportunities for someone who knows English and Language and has basic Science knowledge and skills. There is science writing and reporting, Working for the scientific journals, possible field work at your University or the state Dept of Environmental Conservation, Positions at the many environmental groups. Take or audit some courses at your school and meet the people in your fields of interest and enlist their aid and advice. Read as many science articles in your interests as possible and communicate with the authors. They will be delighted someone has read them and will probably be helpful. Best of luck, we will be looking for your byline. JimG
