The course aims to investigate both Human and Physical Geography in greater depth. Topics include: Population, Health, Rivers, Coasts, Tectonics, World Cities and Ecosystems. Students will be engaged through the most up to date topical material as well as by attending field trips to carry out and learn techniques of geographical investigations.
