ST. MARY'S CANOSSIAN COLLEGE

A. Objectives

Geography is the integrated study of the earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live. It is unique in bridging social sciences (human geography) with its understanding of the dynamics of cultures, societies and economies, and the earth sciences (physical geography) in the understanding of the dynamics of physical landscapes and environmental processes. Geography puts this understanding of social and physical processes within the essential context of places and regions – recognizing the great differences in cultures, political systems, economies, landscapes and environments across the world, and the links between them. Understanding the causes of differences and inequalities between places and social groups underlie much of the newer developments in human geography.
