Geography

What will I study?

At AS you will study rivers, coasts, population and the geography of disease. You will also learn about cartographic, statistical and ICT skills used in geography.
At A2 you will study world cities, plate tectonics (earthquakes and volcanoes) and the geography of conflict. You will also study ‘decision making skills’.

 

What does it combine with?

Geography overlaps with many subjects. The ‘Human’ side of the subject links well with English, Media, Business and Travel & Tourism, whilst the ‘Physical’ side complements Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

 

Where can it lead to?

Environmental geography is now a huge subject at university and degrees in topics such as
‘Global Warming’ can now be studied. Engineering, surveying, ecology and the travel industry are all areas suited for Geography.

Entry requirements

There is no need to have studied this at GCSE level, but a grade A*-C in Maths and English would be an advantage.
