Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments. Geographers explore both the physical properties of Earth's surface and the human societies spread across it. They also examine how human culture interacts with the natural environment and the way that locations and places can have an impact on people. Year 1 During the first year of the course students will learn about Tectonic Processes and Hazards, the Water Cycle and Water Insecurity, the Carbon Cycle and Energy Security as well as Coastal Landscapes and Change. Students will gain an understanding of these dynamic landscapes and concepts and explore how humans interact with them. Students shall also learn about Globalisation and Superpowers as well as a topic exploring the regeneration of diverse places. Students will gain an understanding of these dynamic places and how they interact with one another. Year 2 In year 2 students will focus on three synoptic themes, these are players, attitudes and actions and futures and uncertainties. Students will have to answer a series of questions based around a geographical issue within a place based context. This exam will be focused around a resource booklet. Students shall also have to complete a fieldwork investigation and write up a report on their findings. This is a Linear A Level course with three exam papers at the end of the second year of study and one piece of coursework. Content and layout is subject to change.
