Through a study of geography students learn about human interaction with their environments and the impact of, and responses to, environmental change.

As students develop an understanding of the contribution of a geographical perspective they will study the:

  • characteristics and spatial distribution of environments
  • processes that form and transform the features and patterns of the environment
  • global and local forces that impact on people, ecosystems, urban places and economic activity.

Students learn the skills of geographical investigation and communication through a process of geographical inquiry and propose actions for a just society as active and informed citizens.

The NESA geography page contains the syllabus and support materials including a sample assessment schedule, information about the HSC, exam specifications and assessment information as well as past papers.
