Geography draws on students’ curiosity about the diversity of the world’s places and their people, cultures and environments. It enables students to appreciate the complexity of our world and the diversity of its environments, economies and cultures. Students can use this knowledge to promote a more sustainable way of life and awareness of social and spatial inequalities.
Students apply geographical inquiry through a more advanced study of geo-graphical methods and skills in the senior years. They learn how to collect in-formation from primary and secondary sources such as field observation and data collection, mapping, monitoring, remote sensing, case studies and re-ports. Fieldwork, in all its various forms, is central to such inquiries as it enables students to develop their understanding of the world through direct experience.
