LEVEL 3 GEOGRAPHY 3GEO   

What is this course about? Geography looks at how the world is shaped by physical, social, and cultural forces. It is the study of the Earth as the  home of people and seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time. Relationships and connections between  people and their natural and cultural environments are explored to better understand issues we face. This is important  as we are both local and global citizens. As our world becomes increasingly interconnected we need individuals who  possess an understanding of how these connections work. This course includes both physical geography, Karst  landscapes and human geography, global maritime piracy and locational analysis. ​Where can Earth & Environmental  science take you?​ , ​ ​What is Geography​ , ​The splendor of planet Earth​ will give you a good idea of Geography’s wide  variety of topics and opportunities.

What sorts of things will I do? A trip to Waitomo to explore and learn about interacting natural processes that create the surface and subterranean  features of this unique natural limestone environment. Research and compare the location factors responsible for giving  the motor dealers in Wairau Park and Newmarket their respective characteristics. Develop your Google Earth, MyMaps  and spreadsheet skills. These are transferable personal skills for lifelong learning. Study a contemporary geographic  issue, climate change refugees to develop a justified solution. Understand modern day maritime piracy and development  inequalities on a global scale. While field work is an important part of any geography course, development of and using  technology (Drones, GIS, VR & AR) is becoming increasingly important. Why and how is the Lantern Festival a significant  event?
