Geography in general
Advantages: breadth of information
Disadvantages: not specialist enough
At school Geography is often a 'marmite subject' - you love it or hate it. Personally I love the subject and continued to through specialisation at University. Focusing mainly on human geography I fail to understand how someone cannot love a subject which is so centered around current affairs, the natural environment and ultimately everything we encounter in our every day life.
Geography has been quoted as being the jack of all trades subject which allows pupils to develop an understanding of current affairs, essay writting and statistics thus making it highly employable. It is also a degree with a conscience which also appeals to many employers.
However, does jack of all trades means master of none? In the current economic climate does being too broad reflect badly? I dont think it has quite come to this within the business sector, however if a graduate wishes to remain within the environmental sector having further qualifications is starting to be a prerequisit as often there is someone with a more specialised
I would persue Geography if you are passionate about it since it is fascinating and is usually a degree which can be largely shaped by the individual due to its breadth.
Summary: Great degree subject and a highly relevant understanding of society today
