Today, almost every business is looking for a way to help the environment and go green
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) April 22, 2008
Every Earth Day millions of people rally to help the environment and many become inspired to make their passion a life-long career. Today, jobs with a green focus are growing faster than the average for all occupations. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, the employment of environmental scientists is predicted to increase by 25 percent from 2006 to 2016. The strongest growth is expected to be in private-sector consulting firms as more businesses realize the importance of going green. To help meet this growing demand, eLearners.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics, offers a variety of online courses in environmental studies from select online colleges.
"Today, almost every business is looking for a way to help the environment and go green," said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer for eLearners.com. "This is a rapidly growing industry that is constantly seeking knowledgeable and highly skilled professionals to lead the charge."
eLearners.com, which connects prospective students with online learning providers, has nearly a dozen online degree programs in environmental science. For example, students can pursue one of several online graduate programs in Environmental Management or pursue a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences. eLearners.com also offers several online bachelor's degree programs in environmental studies.

According to recent research on sustainability by Burst Media, more than 80 percent of survey respondents try to incorporate some type of "green" activity into their lives. Respondents stated that they are committed to green activities because it's good for the environment and they want to impact the future, make a difference and live simply. The millions of Americans who choose to pursue online education each year are in the desirable position of helping the environment and meeting personal educational goals.
"Not only is pursuing a degree in environmental sustainability a way to follow one's passion, but going online is an exercise in being green as well," continued Thomas. "By attending online schools, students don't have to drive to school, eliminating carbon emissions. In addition, online students do their class work on the Internet, reducing the amount of paper used, and even some digital textbooks are now available. It's a win-win situation."
