There are two options for geography studies: this one is the human and social geography side (there is also an option for physical geography, a more science-based degree). There is a shortage of social science graduates with really good maths skills, and graduates from these disciplines who have them are in demand from modern industry. An ability to combine good data handling skills with good communication and social skills will really help start your career, and that's something a geography degree with a good stats component can really bring to the jobs market. It's also why unemployment rates for the degree are much lower than average, and a lot of geography graduates start their careers in sought-after jobs in the business and finance industry – so if you take this subject, be sure to take your maths and stats modules.

History is a very popular subject – in 2012, nearly 11,000 UK students graduated in a history-related course. Obviously, there aren't 11,000 jobs as historians available every year, but history is a good, flexible degree that allows graduates to go into a wide range of different jobs. Consequently, history graduates have an unemployment rate comparable to the national graduate average. Many – probably most – jobs for graduates don't ask for a particular degree to go into them and history graduates are well set to take advantage. That's why so many go into jobs in the finance industry, management and sales and marketing. Around one in five history graduates went into further study last year – only law saw more graduates continue on to study. History and teaching were the most popular further study subjects for history graduates, but law, journalism, politics and museum studies were also popular postgraduate courses.
