Progression and Career Opportunities

Geography is unique in that it can be both a Humanities and a Science subject at university, depending on the subjects it is combined with at A Level.
Geography is great for any kind of career that involves the environment, planning, or collecting and interpreting data. Popular careers for people with geography qualifications include: town or transport planning, surveying, conservation, sustainability, environmental planning, tourism, and weather forecasting.
The army, police, government, research organisations, law and business world also appreciate the practical research skills that geographers develop.
