What can you do with a geography degree?

Where can a degree in geography take you? Onto any continent and any ocean; into any forest, desert, or city. Since geography’s impact is global, the possibilities are practically limitless. Clark alumni work in careers that challenge the status quo, and our students prepare for those careers through internships offering real-world experience and enduring skills.
