Level 3 Geography

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Redpath

Geography is the study of the earth as the home of people. It combines elements of the sciences with the humanities to help students to understand the world around them. Geographers do this by explaining all the factors that make up the human and physical environment and how they affect each other. Geography enables students to develop the thinking, practical and social skills needed for making decisions. Sustainability is a key component and is interwoven throughout all the topics.
