A World of Possibilities

Celebrate Career Paths in Geography   

Everything happens somewhere, they say. For every “somewhere,” there are geographers exploring the how, why, and what of those places. Environmental conservation, population dynamics, political histories, medical mysteries: There is literally a world of possibilities for a career in geography. 

The impressive array of career choices might be one of our discipline’s best-kept secrets. This year, AAG aims to change that. During the 35th annual Geography Awareness Week (#GeoWeek2022), we’re showcasing the work of geographers in strikingly diverse areas, from agriculture and food security to tracking illegal mining; from foregrounding the geographies of health to the work of correlating cancer and air quality and applying GIS to patterns of substance abuse; from assuring the integrity of population counts to safeguarding wildlife ecologies; from advising on climate resilience to protecting fair voting maps.  

Geographers are wherever things are happening. Find out where we work!
