Students at UTC can choose to study Geography at GCSE as one of their optional subjects.
Geography at UTC South Durham is based on a balanced framework of human and physical Geography as set out by the AQA Geography course. This course encourages students to investigate the links between these two themes, addressing such topics as energy resources, sustainability and climate change. As part of the GCSE course students will undertake two fieldtrips examining areas of both the natural and man-made world, whilst evaluating the impact one has upon the other.
This course also enables students to develop a strong understanding of populations and demographics, markets and regions, economic development and globalisation; knowledge and skills which are valued by employers.
