Geography embraces the study of human societies and their environment, and is one of the few subjects in which human and physical aspects of the environment are integrated.
The Geography degree programme at Queen's University Belfast develops core skills and employment-related experiences that are valued by employers, professional organisations and academic institutions.
Some graduates pursue careers in geography-related areas such as urban and rural planning, environmental conservation and management, careers in GIS and teaching. A significant number develop careers in a wide range of other sectors, e.g. management, marketing, NGOs, financial services, the civil service (especially land and property, environment, and development agencies), computing (especially using geographic data), and various graduate programmes.
We regularly consult and develop links with a large number of employers including the NI Environment Agency, Ordnance Survey, the National Trust, Land and Property Services and the Geological Survey of NI (GSNI), who provide advice on our programmes and in-depth careers sessions on their work.
We offer a designated ‘Geography and Employability’ module that is run in collaboration with QUB’s Careers, Employability and Skills directorate. This includes employer workshops, job application skills development, and one-to-one meetings with tutors and careers professionals.
