EDX L3 A Level in Geography

COURSE OVERVIEW

By focusing on current global issues linked to physical and human Geography, you will explore the relationship between people and the environment. You will be encouraged to think critically about the world around you; to make decisions about the future; and to develop a wide range of geographical skills. A key part of Geography A Level involves field work trip/s for which there will most likely be an additional cost.

Topics studied in Year 1:

• Tectonic processes and hazards

• Coastal landscapes and change

• Regenerating places

• Globalisation

• Superpowers

Topics studied in Year 2:

• The carbon cycle and energy security

• The water cycle and water insecurity

• Health, human rights and intervention

Students will also undertake a compulsory Independent Investigation, which in previous years has been based on a 5-day residential field trip to South Wales during Year 12.

You will have the opportunity to work both in groups and individually to complete your work. Tasks are varied and are based around ‘real world’; examples which explain and highlight geographical theories and concepts. You will explore both human and physical themes with a variety of resources.
