Would you like a job that takes you to different places?

Geographers observe, describe and analyze human and natural systems.

They use tools like geographic information systems and remote sensing. They apply their skills to solving today's problems, in particular those related to the environment, resource management, urban planning, globalization and development.

They often have to work in the field, so they get to travel widely.
