Development and global issues

Do you have a genuine interest in global affairs and a real passion to make a difference?

The challenges of global peace and security, economic and social development, human rights, humanitarian issues and international law offer demanding yet fulfilling careers for geographers.

As geography is such a broad and inter-related, project management makes good use of the wide ranging skills and knowledge. Language abilities, report writing and skills in presentation and communication will be developed as part of a university course.

For some posts you would need to command confidence and be outgoing with good networking skills. Empathy and cultural tolerance plus a desire to embrace new experiences are essential.
