A Level Geography at St Peter's Catholic School
Whether it’s the devastation caused by a natural disaster on the other side of the world or just the impact of government cutbacks on their local community, geographers have a keen interest in the world around them. In AS Geography there are plenty of opportunities to study how our planet is changing and the story behind these changes. In AS Geography, you will study two core units (Rivers, Floods & Management and Population Change), followed by two options (Health Issues and Coastal Environments). You will consider the values and attitudes of decision makers, think about your own values and attitudes and develop your understanding through the study of specific case studies. Geography contains elements of pure and social sciences and complements many other
AS options. You will develop an impressive range of cartographic, investigative, ICT, graphical and data interpretation skills, providing an excellent grounding for employment or further study.
