People often say that I'm curious about too many things at once... But can you really forbid someone from harbouring a desire to know and embrace everything that surrounds them?

Head of Geography

Geography at Hautlieu is a course for those with enquiring minds who are keen to explore the physical sciences and human sciences which can help explain physical patterns and processes from river dynamics to coastal geography, tectonic and atmospheric hazards as well as water and carbon cycles and the insecurities they pose for human civilisation.  The human side of the courses explore the structure and functioning of settlements along with international development, health human rights and geopolitics.  Students have the opportunity to learn from a range of locations from Jersey case studies to places across the globe.  They will have an opportunity to apply knowledge into practice with fieldtrips on both physical and human topics in different locations and develop skills of data gathering and processing.  The geography department also offers opportunities for students to upskill themselves in delivering presentations and speech writing.  We work with many organisations including government and charities to help students develop empathetic skills in understanding problems and issues that countries face and how governments including our own seek to plan and resolve problems for future generation from housing to climate change.
