Social Sciences


Get ready to explore the Earth! Geography isn't all about locating states and countries on a map. It's about diving into the physical features of land and how it impacts the people who live there. Since Geographers study not just the land, but the people who inhabit it, you will also discover how changing demographics can influence geographical sites. In this Social Sciences subject, you will examine different branches of geography ranging from Integrated Geography to Geomatics. Knowing your Geography can advance your expertise in other areas as well, including Archeology, Economics and Health. ​
