As my husband stated we are moving to Austin this summer and will be going to college there... our dream jobs are in wildlife park forestry. I wanted to major in archaeology but I'm scared about the job market. I want to make sure that if we invest our four years and finances that we make smart choices... any thoughts or opinions? I have a background in insurance and accounting and it looks like jobs are everywhere in accounting...but that is so boring... We both want adventure and new experiences. Thank you for your threads...it is so appreciated.

What about Forensic Accounting......not outdoorsy, but interesting and lucrative. The "lucrative" part would allow you to have other "adventurous and new experiences."

I hired this company Hicks & Co. Environmental Consulting to perform archeological investigations of the 6 block area of downtown Austin, which was necessary before we built the new City Hall and rebuilt the West Second Street area. This kind of environmental archeology can be really interesting.

They were able to add substantially to the artifacts and history of the area including this Guy Town and the Schneider Vaults here City of Austin - History of Guy Town - Austin City Hall

Unfortunatly, there are probably not a huge number of jobs available in this field. A lot of the tedious field work was done by students who probably got paid very little for their work.
