UCD Geography is proud of our alumni who have gone on to use their degrees to shape our world. Their geography degree has informed their employment, civil society activities and activisms, and their everyday lives.

UCD Geography welcomes alumni back in various forms throughout the year. In February 2021, we hosted a virtual panel with several recent masters graduates discussing the skillsets and knowledge gained from their time with the School and demonstrating the diversity of career opportunities available to Geography graduates. A video of the highlights from that discussion is available (opens in a new window)here.

Summer 2021 marked the first year that we published an Alumni Newsletter! We sent it to reach out and let our Alumni know what we have been getting up to. Did you miss it or are interested it getting to know more? Don't worry, it is still available (opens in a new window)here.
