Geography is the study of the Earth and the way our lives are fundamentally intertwined with the world around us.
As the world continues to become more interconnected, it is vital on both a personal and professional level that we gain an understanding of global systems and our place within them.
Through the study of geography, students will be exposed to a variety of global issues, such as migration, pollution, conservation and environmental protection. The subject helps to deepen student’s intellectual curiosity about the world around us, including the physical landscape, the people who live in it and their respective cultures.
Geography is one of the most attractive subjects for employers when considering potential applicants. Geography students are both effective in independent and team based scenarios, who are exposed to critical analytical thinking. Furthermore, the study of geography cultivates a global appreciation with cultural sensitivities, all of which help geography students stand out in the workforce.
