Our course actively engages learners in the study of geography, developing them as effective and independent students and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds. It aims to develop a knowledge and understanding of geographical concepts and skills. It should further students’ understanding of their responsibilities as global citizens. It enables students to develop and apply their learning to the real world through optional field work and other out-of-classroom activities.
