Career Opportunities  

Geographers are both generalists, who can think interdisciplinarily and incorporate different perspectives, and specialists, who are experts within one area. This combination of ‘breadth' and ‘depth' means that geographers find employment in many different areas, including:
  • In the private sector, e.g. consulting engineering firms
  • In public administration, e.g. as urban planners, project coordinators, environmental workers, business development consultants, student and career counsellors or as academic workers in international organisations
  • As consultants for special interest groups
  • As researchers and upper secondary school teachers

North Campus


North Campus

With the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) as the next door neighbour, the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences are very well placed in the North Campus. North Campus is an ideal setting for interdisciplinary reseach fields. Massive investments in research infrastructure, including the construction of the Niels Bohr Building and the Maersk Building,  are currently being made to develop the area around the North Campus into Copenhagen Science City. North Campus is very centrally located and transport links are excellent. Many students and teacher  also use their bike, and biking in Copenhagen is easy and convenient.
