There is no such thing as a typical Geography career. Our graduates go on to a wide variety of jobs across a broad range of sectors. Our graduates are highly employable owing to the wide range of skills and experience that they develop during their degrees. Each term we invite our alumni to give talks to our students to help them explore different careers. If you want to make sure that you are employable, but also want to leave your options open, then Geography is a great choice.

The Geography degree at Durham provided a great intellectual challenge and curiosity for viewing, researching and reflecting critically about pressing global issues in very different ways. The seminars & workshops with professors at the very top of their fields challenged us to improve our communication, presentation and thinking techniques. These transferable skills have been immensely useful in my career alongside the vast amount of practical environmental knowledge I use in my everyday work.
