Why study geography?

Geographers examine the physical, biological, economic and social processes that affect environments and places, and the interconnections between people, environments and places.

Geographers are interested in issues such as the processes that create and transform environments, the welfare of people in particular places, the effects of changes in the global economy, the changing physical, economic and social structure of cities, and migration patterns.

They are also involved in the management of environmental resources and the planning of localities and regions.

At Flinders the study of geography emphasises the skills of information gathering including fieldwork, and numerical and graphical skills in data analysis and presentation.

Career opportunities

Geographers find work. Because the study of Geography provides students with a variety of specific, discipline-related skills as well as transferable skills (eg computing, written, oral and graphic communication, statistics) geographers find employment in a diverse range of occupations, in both the public and private sector.

These include positions in overseas development, tourism, real estate, intelligence analysis, urban management, planning, local government, environmental management, teaching, and statistical services.
