A brief look at the topics listed below will show you that Geography students study some of the most important and challenging issues facing the world. Through your studies you will develop the skills and knowledge needed by those in the public, voluntary and business sectors to make informed decisions on which the future of our planet depends. The skills learned are transferable and will open the door to many career options.
We expect you to take an active part in lessons, to ask questions and draw your own reasoned conclusions about key issues based on your research.
