Geography and History are the subjects offered at JSC level
History is a participation in the social, civic, political, economic, cultural and natural environment, and is central to the Social Sciences area of learning. It includes understanding and interpreting past and present human behaviour and experiences, and how they influence events, circumstances and the environment. As a subject, History is within the social and economic area of learning in the curriculum, but has thematic links to other subjects across the curriculum. History functions within the social and economic area of learning.
Geography is the study of earth’s landscapes, people, places and environment. It examines humans in their interdependent relationship with the earth. Geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with natural sciences (physical geography). Human geography concerns the understanding of the dynamics of cultures, societies and economies, while physical geography concerns the understanding of the dynamics of physical landscape and the environment. It helps us all to be more socially and environmentally sensitive, informed and responsible citizens.
