Types of Geology and Geography Positions

 

The Geo Career MaPS Survey asked faculty about the types of positions their advisees secured after graduation, asked students about the types of positions they are pursuing, and compared these to the types of positions non-academic professionals currenly hold.  The categories "Academia", "Government" and "Private Sector" on the y-axis are comprised of several different positions. Academia includes working within K-12 education, at a 2-year institution or at a 4-year institution. Government positions include those at the local, state, tribal or federal levels. Finally, the Private Sector includes anything in industry, consulting or self-employment.
