Abstract: This study investigates student' motivation to pursue careers and courses in environmental sciences with particular reference to the differential experiences of males and females involved in non-traditional training and career areas for females. Although males and females were found to have much in common some important differences emerged in relation to perception of skills and abilities, experience of sexual bias, relationships with educators and the importance of certain role models. These results may have implications for further research, training and education programmes, teach staff/student relationships and the role of on-the-job supervisors.
