Geography is the most diverse of all the Humanities subjects.
The study of Geography is devoted to the study of the Earth’s land forms, oceans, environment and ecosystems, as well as the interactions between the human society and their environment. The word geography literally means “earth writing”. Saint John Houghton Geographers will be exploring and studying the Earth’s natural environment and human society.
