Teaching & Learning

Study of Society & Environment

The study of Geography and History allows students to develop an understanding of past, present and future geographical issues so that they can appreciate the views of different groups within society, which enables them to contribute to debate about planning for the future.

In addition, students will develop a critical perspective on the past, and learn how to compare different accounts and perspectives so that conflict and ambiguities are appreciated. Through comparative historical and geographical analysis and critical appraisal of evidence, the SoSE student develops into an active and informed citizen.
