Geography is a subject that allows students to explore the relationships between humans and the environment that they live in. It allows them to make sense of the issues that the world faces and the processes that affect how the world works. It allows them to make informed decisions about how the world should deal with the issues that it faces.
When you study Geography and learn about places, you appreciate the world around you and the need to respect and safeguard it. You develop important skills for adult life such as map reading, ICT, graph & photo interpretation and problem solving. Your literacy skills improve as you learn to argue points, express opinions and reach conclusions.
