Doing well in this subject will help you:

Geographers can move into careers as International Development Workers or Nature Conservation Officers. If that is not for you, how about landscape architecture? Or you could even help the Government by looking at town planning, environmental science and teaching. The skills that are taught in History are very useful in work, study and life.  Accountancy, tourism, law, politics, town planning, medicine and journalism are just a few of the subjects which welcome a History qualification.
