Geography graduates have good records of employability compared to other disciplines and Durham graduates have excellent records compared to many other institutions. A Durham Geography graduate will be literate, numerate and articulate. You will have experience of a number of computer software programs and have the experience of working both individually and co-operatively in groups. You will therefore be very well placed to compete in the career market. Geography is popular with employers because of the literacy, numeracy and graphic skills interwoven within a degree. In other words, most geography graduates can collect and summarise data; write a concise report; present data clearly and efficiently; and will possess specialist technical field and research skills. A geography degree provides a springboard into diverse areas and our recent graduates work in many fields, including: environmental science and management, research and education, administration, planning, finance and banking, accountancy, legal professions, teaching, the armed forces, management, the police, conservation, banking, marketing and sales, or into higher degrees and postgraduate research.
