Geography & Planning

Employment Opportunities

Graduates of Geography programs have a wide variety of careers open to them, but usually they do not have "Geographer" in the title. Examples include Planners, Spatial Analysts, Travel Consultants, Foresters, GIS Technicians, Project Directors, Transportation Specialists, Environmental Consultants, Demographers, Township Directors, and Mapping Professionals.

The Association of American Geographers has a page for jobs in geography, and the AAG site also provides information regarding employment and salary trends, sample jobs, career advice, and more.
