“Sociology is always sparking interesting conversations and ideas with both my teachers and peers, particularly when discussing theories of Feminism, Postmodernism, Marxism etc.”
Geography is the science of how humans interact with planet Earth, studying the relationship between the human population and exploring how we live in the physical environment. Topics you will study vary from tectonic hazards to water & carbon cycles and also how places change. If the idea of learning how cities change over time or how a tectonic system operates excites you, this is the subject for you.
In the first year, you will complete two fieldwork days to develop your fieldwork skills in preparation for your AS-Level examination. At A-Level (second year), there is a compulsory 3-4 day residential fieldwork trip which further hones your fieldwork skills so that you can complete your individual investigation. This investigation is worth 20%, and this qualification cannot be attained without attending the fieldwork component.
