Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Meade

Geography is the study of Earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live. Geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography). Units of learning in Year 13 include:
- Coastal processes – Waihi Beach
- New Zealand contemporary issue - Offshore mining
- Significant contemporary event - Beach Hop
If you are intending for this to be a University approved subject, you must take both Semester A and B of this course.

It is expected that students will develop skills in all areas but will complete between 8 and 12 credits for assessment. Not all skills taught will be assessed.
