Geography is an integrated subject considered to be both a science and a social science subject. It plays an important role in developing scientific and technological literacy in students. This feature of geography also offers the potential for a wide range of cross curricular opportunities.

Studying geography develops the students’ concept of the Earth as an integrated whole and their understanding of different processes in nature and society, as well as the spatial distribution and interdependence of these processes. The focus is on learning the interaction between the environment and human activities and on supporting ideas of sustainable development. The environment is understood in its broadest sense, encompassing the natural, economic, social and cultural environments. In studying geography, the students develop a sustainable way of life whilst promoting attitudes that value both natural and cultural diversity and active participation in solving global problems.

Studying geography, the students acquire different skills that are becoming more and more important in our mobile society.
