Course Summary

Geography

Geography is the study of Earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. Fundamentally it is about the world in which we live. Geography offers a 21st century education by uniquely bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography). Human geography focuses on understanding the dynamics of cultures, societies and economies, while physical geography focuses on understanding the dynamics of physical landscapes. In Trinity, a Geography degree also covers increasingly important environmental issues where humans affect physical environments and vice versa.

Students combine this subject with their choice of French or German.
