The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before. Geography explains why, and helps to prepare you for those changes. The transferable skills which geography fosters are an asset in the complex world of employment today. Geography is about the future and encourages flexible thinking, providing a firm basis for life-long learning. Compared to other subjects, Geography graduates are among the most employable. In part this is because the subject combines a knowledge of science and an understanding of the arts.
