Globalization and the increasing necessity and urgency of understanding geographic aspects of economic activities and human interactions with the environment means that geography is an exciting and rapidly growing field. Geography helps makes sense of a world growing ever more interdependent and complex.
Geographers manage natural and urban environments, analyze relationships between people and places, plan transportation, work in economic development, create sophisticated mapping, and much more.
Geography graduates are employed in agencies like the National Weather Service, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Commerce, the Great Lakes Commission, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and in many other government agencies at the local, state, and national levels.
They are employed at hundreds of TV stations, consulting firms, and other businesses in the private sector working as land use and development planners, cartographers, GIS analysts, trade consultants, climatologists and weather forecasters, and demographers. And they teach and do research at schools and universities everywhere.
