Geography is a very small profession. With the increased emphasis on planning and research in U.S. business and government, however, the number of geographers in business has doubled in recent years. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment opportunities for geographers are expected to grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2022. The use of GIS technology in traditional and nontraditional settings, such as emergency services, environmental science (including the study of climate change), energy exploration, natural hazards, and homeland security, will create many new opportunities for qualified geographers.
