A Bachelor of Science can be a good choice of degree if you are interested in studying a subject that is primarily science-based. It can take between three and five years to earn this type of degree, depending on the school you attend.

What is a BSc in Geographic Sciences? Programs for this degree focus on geography, or the study of the Earth’s physical features, ecosystems, and people. You may also complete a variety of coursework meant to teach you needed skills and information about science and other subjects that may not be strictly geography-based. Some commonly covered topics can include remote sensing, world politics, climatology, and studies of different environments and how they interact.

The map-reading skills you gain by studying geographic sciences can come in handy when you travel to new places. Knowledge of world politics can help you understand things you hear about in the news, and learning about scientific reasoning can help you make logical decisions in your day-to-day life.

The cost of courses can vary from school to school. You may have to do further research to determine how much your BSc will cost.

Having a degree in geographic sciences can help you meet the requirements for several different jobs. You may find a job as a surveyor, cartographer, or environmental planner, and help make important decisions for construction or land management. Once you have your BSc, you can also choose to pursue higher-level degrees in geographic science and eventually be qualified to work as professor, an environmental scientist, or even a space scientist. Some other job opportunities may include working as a researcher or research assistant.

You can find options for earning your degree at universities in your country or at schools around the world. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
