Geographers study human activities either in one location or in a regional or global context. The geographic method of inquiry is not distinguished by particular objects or institutions, but by the way a geographer asks questions about the location of multiple phenomena and the interconnections among spatial distributions.
For example, if a geographer is curious about variations in the incidence of rural and urban poverty, it will be necessary to examine the patterns of social, economic, cultural and physical factors to develop an acceptable
explanation of the observed differences from place to place.
Geographers view the world as a complex mosaic of interconnected people, things and activities. This complex mosaic is expressed as the great variety of places and landscapes we see around us every day.
Career opportunities in geography are diverse, and employment prospects after graduation are excellent. Employment opportunities vary from positions in business and government to jobs in planning and education. Others choose to use their knowledge and energies in programs such as the Peace Corps. Because of the breadth of the discipline, many students choose to specialize in a subfield such as community studies, natural resources and environmental sciences, GIS and spatial analysis or geographic education, whereas others may select a specific region of the world such as Latin America or Africa as a focal point for their studies.
Career opportunities in business and local governments are numerous. They include:
