Future opportunities

Because geography develops so many skills, geographers are very attractive to employers. Geography’s use of facts, figures, maps, ideas, views and values makes it ideal for decision making at work. Geographers go into education, professional and social services, such as environmental management, environmental health, information services, business and finance, market research, banking, management, civil service, sports management, travel and tourism.
