B.ED. GEOGRAPHY

Overview

Geography is concerned with people and place. It enables students to see how people adapt to their environment and how human activities are modified by the environment; it fosters abstract thinking as students master geographical concepts; it also provides the opportunity for students to critically think about, and examine, issues and social problems affecting their community/society. Through geographical enquiry students learn to observe record, make inferences and draw conclusions.
