A major in Geography prepares students to transfer to baccalaureate institutions where they may complete a Bachelorʼs degree in Geography or a related discipline. Many Geography majors enter the education profession at all levels.

State, county and city governments, as well as private companies, hire geographers in the fields of cartography, environmental studies, resource management, and urban planning because of their broad training. The U.S. Geologic Survey traditionally hires geographers in aerial photograph interpretation, land use mapping, map making, and satellite image analysis.

In addition to a career as a geographer, geographic analyst, geographic planner, or agricultural geographer, graduates have opportunities as cartographers, climatologists, demographers, ecologists, environmental scientists, meteorologists, spatial analysts, soil conservationists, surveyors, water resource managers, and land use, urban or recreational resource planners.
