Geography is about what is on, above and below the earth's surface. This means geography is all around us. Geography is a dynamic science that seeks to find out and explain how places and people influence each other. Students learn factual knowledge and also learn about the processes at work in the world around them (i.e. why things happen).


Geography is all about trying to make sense of the complex real world - both natural and cultural. This is achieved by developing and using many different skills and concepts. This broad range of knowledge, skills and ideas is one of the strengths of Geography - it is a very useful subject to study at school because it complements many different subject and career choices. Of course students can also later specialize in Geography itself and it's various branches.
