Why Study Geography?
Geography is a fascinating subject that anyone can enjoy studying at the secondary/ high school or university levels. The topic helps students to understand more about our world, our environment, and our societies. Studying Geography will help you develop your analytical skills as well as provide deeper knowledge in areas such as human development, international trade, economics, political science, and history. It is fascinating to learn about all the different regions around the world and the economic, and political, implications of our planet's physical geography. You will learn to properly understand the environment and weather systems. You will also learn about how the planet has formed physically - geomorphology, and landforms. You will deepen your knowledge of climate change, and, importantly, how humanity needs to face it.
What degrees is Geography useful for?
Studying geography can lead to many different university degrees. Some people study geography at the secondary, or high school level and then go on to get a degree in Environmental Studies, Geography, Urban Planning, or Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Other students may choose to go on to study politics, archaeology, or urban design.
What careers can studying geography lead to?
Geographers study the environment and how it changes over time. They also study human interactions with the natural world - for example, a geographer might try to figure out why people in one area eat more/less meat than those in another. Or use more/less energy than in another. These types of studies can lead to positions in many different industries;
- Environmental consulting, market research
- Commercial construction
- Urban planning
- Civil service positions dealing with policies on energy use or sustainability
- Environmental consulting
- Cartography (map making)
- Disaster management
- Environmental Engineering
