Unique Courses for Geography Majors
There
are no unique courses for Geography majors alone. All of the usual lecture courses in Geography have
students from other programs enrolled.
Evidence of Employer Demand
Graduates in Geography can expect to enter a favorable job market. Our past graduates
have been successfully
employed by Garmin, Inc., the Defense mapping Agency/ Geospatial imaging Center, the National Park Service,
and many other government and private employers.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports the following information on
careers directly related to the
Geography BA/BS degree program, clearly illustrating the need for students trained in these fields
.
Geographers
: “Overall employment is projected to grow
much faster than
average
, but varies by detailed
occupation. For anthropologists and archaeologists, opportunities will be best with management, scientific, and
technical consulting services companies. For geographers, opportunities will be best for those who have GIS
expe
rience or knowledge.
Keen competition
is expected for historian jobs
because the number of applicants
typically outnumbers the number of positions available.”
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos315.htm#projections_data
“
Employment of geographers is expected to increase by 26 percent because the Federal Government
—
the largest
employer
—
is projected to grow faster than in the past. Outside of
the Federal Government, geographers will be
needed to advise businesses, local municipalities, real estate developers, utilities, and telecommunications firms
regarding where to build new roads, buildings, power plants, and cable lines. Geographers also w
ill be needed to
advise about environmental matters, such as where to build a landfill and where to preserve wetland habitats
.”
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos315.htm#projections_data
“
Geographers with a background in GIS will find numerous job opportunities applying GIS technology in
nontraditional areas, such as emergency assistance, where GISs can track the locations of ambulances, police,
and fire rescue units and their proximity to
the emergency. Workers in these jobs may not be called
"geographers," but instead may be referred to by a different title, such as
‘
GIS analyst
’
or
‘
GIS specialist.
’”
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos315.htm#projections_data
Surveyors,
cartographers
, & photogrammetrists: “These occupations should experience
faster than average
employment growth. Surveyors, cartographers, an
d photogrammetrists who have a bachelor's degree and strong
technical skills should have
favorable job prospects
.” A +27% change is projected for the period 2008

2018 for
cartographers and photogrammetr
ists.
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos040.htm#outlook
Atmospheric scientists
: Employment is expected to increase
faster than average
. Applicant
s face
keen
competition
; those with graduate degrees should enjoy better prospects than those with only a bachelor’s
degree.” A +15% change in employment is projected for the period 2008

2018.
