    Hi, I'm in year 10 and it seems a long shot but thinking of doing a human geography?

    I want to be a geography teacher but if that fails I don't know what else I would do with a human geography degree??

    I guess I have my a-levels to fall back on, but just thinking what else I could do with the degree!

    Sorry if I seem a little dismissive but as you're in Year 10, I won't be so concerned with what degree you are going to do right now. It's good to have an idea but get through GCSE, see which subjects you like and which you are good at. By A level, you can think of degrees and career opportunities.

    I would like to point out that having a degree in geography isn't a bad degree at all. You won't get get into medicine or any other vocational career but there are plenty of careers that don't require a specific degree.

    Do you mean a degree called Human Geography, or a degree focused on human geography?
    BA Geography is mostly human, and BSc is mostly physical.

    I agree with Basic. Just work through geography GCSE (assuming you're doing this), then carry it on through to A level. I didn't start thinking about degrees until last summer (end of year 12 .-.),and only decided on a geography degree in October.

    Geography degrees can be used in many careers. You can even get into Investment Banking if you go to a 'top' university, as many graduate jobs don't need a specific degree.
