Geography Level 2

L2GEO
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Peterson

Geography is the study of how people interact with their environment. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time – past, present, and future.

Level 2 Geography builds onto the concepts we explore at Level 1. There is a focus on social and natural Geography through case studies in Aotearoa New Zealand.

  • The Natural Landscape of the Tongariro Volcanic Centre
  • The globalisation and evolution of Hip Hop music
  • The Ethnoscape (ethnic landscape) of Auckland City
  • Applying Geographic Skills to various contexts.

We offer a trip to the Tongariro Volcanic Centre in Term 1 to undertake geographic research (5 credits) and explore the natural landscape (4 credits).

He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata - What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.
