9. Environmental Health Director

Caring for the environment doesn’t just mean worrying about the oceans and the o-zone. Environmental health directors consider how the health of the planet is affecting the health of the people living on it. Environmental health professionals deal with sanitation, sewage, and public facility issues. They investigate public health problems, and try to find solutions. If the world is a cleaner place, everyone will be healthier.

Work in environmental health involves at least a bachelor degree in public health, environmental health or science, or a related field. For some jobs, an advanced degree, such as a Master of Public Health, is required. Anyone interested in this field must have knowledge of the environment and public health.

As concern for the climate grows, so should employment opportunities for environmental health directors.
