Advantages of Studying Geography
The ability to view issues from a wide perspective is appropriate for working in many different areas. The nature of peoples’ working lives is changing. It is less likely that someone will spend all their life in one company or organization (the so-called job for life). If your career path is to be varied you will need to develop transferable skills and you will need to be flexible. The study of Geography fosters this ability by providing a firm base for life-long learning.
