Geography

Geography is the study of Earth’s landscapes, people, places, and environments, bridging the social and natural sciences. A level Geography develops an understanding of a wide range of physical and human geographical issues such as pollution, erosion, and climate change.

You will take part in fieldwork to research the sociological and economical influences on places and environments. You will develop a range of skills including understanding and interpreting statistics, research methods, and cartography (the study of land). You will also have ample opportunities to discuss your own attitudes to contemporary issues of concern and suggest solutions.

There will be an increased push towards exams as the preferred form of assessment, so coursework content from this course may be removed. This course may involve a mix of assignments and examinations as your assessment methods.

Progression routes
