Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments. Geographers explore both the physical properties of Earth’s surface and the human societies spread across it.

Geography is a really useful subject as the skills and knowledge you gain can be used in almost every job sector. 

There are lots of geography related jobs available to deal with the consequences of climate change such as in flood risk management and environmental management. 

There are practical roles working outside as a countryside ranger for the National Trust or planning sustainable transport networks for new towns. You could be using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to plan where there is demand for a supermarket or working on a project for a charity overseas.
