Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Butcher

This course will introduce and develop your expertise in aspects of human Geography. Internal assessments include a contemporary geographical issue, a planning problem and a global study. You will develop a wide range of geographic skills including research, map and photograph interpretation, statistical analysis and critical thinking. The course builds on knowledge and skills from Level 2 Geo. but we welcome everyone; it can be picked-up if you have note done Geo. before and are prepared to make an effort.
