    You have to earn a Bachelors before going on to the Master's. Earn your first degree and test the job market. If you get a job, work awhile. Some employers will help pay for graduate degrees. It's also beneficial to work in the field before going to grad school because you will have real life, not just text book, knowledge, and you'll have an idea what you would like to pursue research-wise.

    Look at a job posting site like CareerBuilders or Monster and see what education requirements various "environmental engineer" jobs require. Generally speaking, a masters degree will afford the holder more advance opportunities associated with a higher end salary.

    A masters degree will make it easier for you to become a manager of other engineers. Overall, a person with a masters will make between 10% to 50% more n their lifetime than someone with just a bachelors.
