The geography major offers a foundation for any number of career paths. Recent graduates have joined MA or PhD programs in geography, urban planning, urban studies, natural resource management, and international relations at universities such as the University of Michigan, NYU, Syracuse University, the University of Toronto, the University of Edinburgh, University College - Dublin, Rutgers University, University of Illinois at Chicago, the University of Chicago, Tufts University, and the Ohio State University to name only a few. Many remain at DePaul to pursue graduate education in
Sustainable Urban Development,
Public Policy, or other closely aligned graduate programs. Most of our alums, however, have taken the skills honed and the concepts learned in Geography to successful careers as planners, cartographers and GIS technicians, geospatial engineers, policy analysts, activists, and advisors in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
