Geography

Why is the subject important?

There has never been a more important time to study geography. It is essential in an age of rapid environmental, technological and political change that students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to understand how the world is changing and their place within it.

Geography is a unique and multidisciplinary subject which draws upon various disciplines to enable students to understand the human and physical worlds and how they interact. The skills that are developed in geography will allow students to become analytical, articulate, knowledgeable and evaluative citizens of the world. These skills could allow students to access careers in areas such as meteorology, sustainability, urban development, GIS analysis, education and economics, to name a few.
