Geography (A/T/M)

Geography is an inquiry-based subject, in which students investigate problems and deepen their understanding of important geographical issues. Students develop fieldwork and other research and investigative skills, as well as critical thinking, as they gather information, interpret it, and present their findings. In Geography, we study rapid change in biophysical environments, the sustainability of places, dealing with environmental risks and the consequences of international integration. This subject provides a systematic, integrative way of exploring, analysing and applying the concepts of place, space, environment, interconnection, sustainability, scale and change. These principal geographical concepts are applied and explored in depth through the four main topics, to provide a deeper knowledge and understanding of the complex processes shaping our world.
