“Sociology is always sparking interesting conversations and ideas with both my teachers and peers, particularly when discussing theories of Feminism, Postmodernism, Marxism etc.”
This is a very interesting and engaging AS/A-Level course. 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/glacial landscapes to water & carbon cycles and even resource security. If the idea of learning how cities change over time or how a volcano system operates excites you, this may be a subject that suits your interests.
This course also includes compulsory fieldwork that helps your geographical skills bloom, which will then be built upon and developed for an individual investigation during the A-Level (second year). This fieldwork will be undertaken in Arran, Scotland. This qualification cannot be attained without attending the fieldwork component.
