Geography at Reepham High School and College

Course description

Geographers study the interaction between people and the places they inhabit. The world in which we live is in constant change. Geography allows you to see why and how it is changing. It can enhance communication skills, literacy and numeracy, spatial awareness, team working, IT literacy, problem solving and environmental awareness.

Because Geography sits at the interface of the sciences and humanities, the subject can be studied in science or arts/social science faculties - leading to a BA or BSc degree. “The employment record of Geography graduates is impressive, not least because of the emphasis which many departments place on the teaching of specific and transferable skills” (ISCO).

It is these skills that interest a wide variety of employers. Geographic information is used in all kinds of business and organisations and the development of Geographical Information Systems has meant new ways of inputting, storing, displaying and analysing geographic information on computer systems.

Geography graduates go into a wide variety of jobs, particularly into business fields such as administration and management, law, financial work and sales, marketing and buying. Information technology and organisational skills, acquired on a Geography degree course, can be very useful in the Civil Service, local government, town and country planning, commerce and industry.
