Career opportunities

Geographers are both generalists, who can think interdisciplinarily and incorporate different perspectives, and specialists, who are experts within one area. This combination of ‘breadth' and ‘depth' means that geographers find employment in many different areas, including:

  • In the private sector, e.g. consulting engineering firms
  • In public administration, e.g. as urban planners, project coordinators, environmental workers, part-time consultants, business development consultants, student, and career counselors or as academic workers in international organizations such as MS Danish Association for International Co-operation and the UN, which includes working in developing countries.
  • As consultants for special interest groups
  • As researchers and upper secondary school teachers.
