Career Opportunities/Additional Information
Geography is a specific requirement for some careers such as urban planning. Geographers, however, are found in all walks of life. The subject imparts skills of observation, investigation, analysis and interpretation, which are essentially management skills required in a wide variety of careers. Geography also enables people to make informed judgements on some of the important social, political, economic and environmental issues of the day. The subject by its nature is integrative between the arts and sciences.
