Geography

Geography education in Singapore seeks to develop in students an appreciation of the Earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environment, putting their understanding of social and physical processes within the context of places and regions. The A-Level Geography Curriculum seeks to develop conceptual understanding of Geographical knowledge, to allow students to gain depth in understanding stakeholders and processes that shape the physical and human environment they live in. With an aim to equip students with the ability to analyse, evaluate and reflect on information received, students can learn to develop logical arguments, explanations and make informed decisions. This allows Geography students to better appreciate the complexities of situations by considering multiple viewpoints and the dynamic interactions between the physical and human environment at local, regional and global scales.

The College’s Geography programme welcomes all students who have an interest in understanding processes that shape the human and physical environment through inquiry processes and discussions, develop critical thinking skills, and learn to synthesize and communicate information and arguments in a convincing manner. A hands-on approach through both local and regional fieldtrips is adopted to enrich student’s understanding and application of Geographical knowledge.
