Hi, recommend that you build your degree around aspects of Geog that you really like the sound of e.g. rivers / climate as it's easier to get motivated in specialisms rather than the subject as a whole. Geog at uni will include really specialist things anyway - you'll get immersed in the details of the subject (that's the point of uni - introduces you to the niche elements) and, if you've chosen based on what drives you generally, then you'll like it.
Geog has always been an incredibly flexible discipline. There's as much maths, history, geopolitics, science, cutting-edge developments etc as you want. You can also go more classical and enjoy the resonances from the past e.g. colonial explorers' pioneering advances and the Congo as it is today.
Employers rate a Geog degree for this reason: it's got variety and you can drive it yourself.
