You should possibly consider studying environmental science or environmental engineering in third level.

You would also need to consider if you would like do quite a bit of driving during your day and to be able to oragnise your own work plans as both these things are important.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

The Property Economics course educates students for professional careers in commercial property investment and development i.e. retail (shopping), office and industrial. It is also suitable for those interested in property development, town planning and the general investment market.

The programme seeks to develop the core disciplines required for the professional education of a property economist or a property asset manager.

It particularly emphasises Property Valuations, which together with the other core modules of Economics, Planning and Investment Analysis gives the Property Economics programme its orientation. For the Property Asset Management & Valuation option in final year, the emphasis is changed somewhat to concentrate on property Asset Management, Housing Studies and Valuation.

Property Valuation is a skill based on the application of economic and financial evaluation techniques to land and buildings. The educational approach seeks to develop in the student the ability to evaluate and integrate information from diverse sources to arrive at a conclusion. This is a distinctive characteristic skill of the valuer.
