Studying Geography at University

There are a huge number of undergraduate courses focusing on geography related disciplines. Some courses may involve a mix of human, physical and environmental geography, or you can specialise. There are many related courses such as Geology, Environmental Science, Earth Sciences etc and there are also many joint honours degrees, for example Geography and Economics, Geography and International Development, Geography and Law, amongst many others. Geography graduates are highly employable and there are many career opportunities open to them, both in continued subject specific related careers as well as a wide range of other careers which value the rich transferable skills that geography graduates offer.
