Geography is a good bridge between science, humanities or arts subjects. Employers value geography students decision making skills, their numeracy and understanding of the need for sustainability.

All students will be required to study on a field trip as part of the AS element of teaching.


Geographers are good communicators with a range of transferable skills. They are numerate and good problem solvers so they are highly valued in a range of careers.

Typical jobs include: Environmental science and management; urban planner/community development; cartographer; GIS specialist; climatologist; writer/ researcher; teaching; emergency/disaster management; demographer; marketing; national park ranger; hydrologist; marine conservation; coastal and river management; traffic analyst; housing officers.

It's a wonderful world. Geography gives you the knowledge to help keep it this way.
