Geography deals with the interactions between man and his environment on the Earth’s surface. It encompasses human (social and economic) and physical (scientific) aspects and their spatial distribution. Topics covered include map-reading, weather, landscapes and the coasts, population, towns and economic activities such as farming, industry and tourism. Such topics are studied from a global (world) and local (Maltese) perspective.
IPAL students intending to study geography at A Level in 1 year must be in possession of the 2 short-term fieldwork reports and the individual fieldwork report.
