Geography- the Science of Earth is a diverse term which deals with aerial differentiation of the surface of the earth. The individuals associated with geography are called Geographers. Geographers are scientists who study about the physical details of the environment, its effects on human and wildlife, weather and climate patterns, economics and culture.
Geography provides numerous options for those who have a keen interest in subjects like countries, people, economy, climate etc. Due of the latest technological developments like Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS), careers in geography are becoming more promising and challenging than ever before.
Geography as a subject is devoted to the study of the earth, the distribution and location of its physical and cultural features, inter-relationship of these features and human life as well as the various phenomenon of Earth. This discipline seeks to examine the relationship and influences between people and the environment. A degree in geography trains and educates an individual to gain success in careers ranging from cartography, business, administration to tourism and planning besides many others depending on the interests of the individual.
