A degree in Geography or GIS studies will prepare you to work in a diversity of fields. Almost any issue can be looked at from a geographical perspective. Marketing. Crime. Health. Conservation. Education. Politics. Tourism. Retailing. Transport. Social services. The list could go on. And that's why a geography background can be relevant to employment in any of those fields, and many more. Spatial data systems, for example, have become a basic necessity for many organizations. Whether you're technology-minded, or more into social science, the reality is that geographical knowledge and skills - or a basic awareness of geographical ways of thinking - can be useful and relevant in any number of occupations.
