A Tracer Study of The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science (bses) Graduates of Bsu

Main Article Content

Romeo A. Gomez Jr.


The study was undertaken to appraise the employment status, curriculum as well as the advanced potential training needs of graduates of the BS Environmental Science (BSES) Program of the university. A survey was conducted from February 2004 to December 2005. Apparently, the employability of graduates was a 'little low' or probably 'not so high' because the expected market has not responded very strongly and positively to the availability of graduates in the field (supply side). Potential markets could be in the the ever-growing environmental degradation and resource depletion. There was a strong indication that students would be more prepared with the inclusion of an on-the-job training (OJT) scheme in the curriculum, aside from the conduct of a thesis. The offering of a graduate or advanced degree in Environmental Science and related fields is proposed.
