A Level Geography encourages learners to apply geographical knowledge, theory and skills to the world around them. In turn this will enable learners to develop a critical understanding of the world’s people, places and environments in the 21st Century. The specification draws on both physical and human geography and involves four days of compulsory fieldwork over the two years.
Students will examine a range of engaging and diverse topics such as coastal environments, plate tectonics, hydrological systems, economic and settlement change, plus much more.
This course provides a firm basis for any further study in geography and a pathway to a geographical career.
Due to the broad nature of the subject, and the skills acquired throughout the course, it combines well with both science and arts subjects to lead to university courses in such areas as journalism, teaching, surveying, accountancy and planning.
Students who choose not to go into Higher Education will have developed a range of transferable skills that allow them to explore a wide range of employment opportunities.
