Course description

To achieve the AS award you need to complete two units.
Unit 1: Global challenges
This unit looks at challenges humans may face in the future. The
impacts of geophysical hazards and global warming are the physical
units studied while globalisation and population change is the main
focus for the human element.
Unit 2 : Geographical Investigations
This unit looks at the challenge of managing coastal areas and how
places can rebrand themselves. This unit requires students to take part
in fieldwork studies which entails a residential trip to a coastal zone to
study the processes learnt in class.
