Geography is a very employable subject. Degrees you could go on to do include conservation, ecology, geography (both human and physical), and environmental studies, although it is unlikely to count against you for any degree. Although fairly uncommon, some universities even count geography as a science. Employers like it for all sorts of jobs because of the amount of transferable skills you will learn, you can work in groups, your math skills are likely to be adequate, you have analytical skills and you are up to date with current affairs as well as being world wise.
