Geography is the study of the Earth’s landscapes, peoples, places, and environments. The study of geography allows students to explore and understand the world around them. Geography promotes a deep understanding of people and place.  Students develop the skills to read their environment, enabling them to interpret the physical landscape, observe world events with an informed eye and discuss the importance of climatic change in a knowledgeable manner. Learning Geography supports students in making informed decisions, giving the ability to make valuable contributions to the economic, social, and cultural life of their communities, localities, and countries.  Fieldwork supports the geography curriculum by promoting geographical knowledge and understanding outside the classroom. Inver College students are given numerous fieldwork experiences such as exploring rock and mineral exploitation in Saint Gobain Gyproc Mine in Drummond Mine, Magheracloone, formation of bogs and traditional turf cutting techniques in Causey farm Co Meath, and collecting data on the erosional, depositional and transportation processes of local rivers such as the River Fane and River Cabra in Dún na Rí Forest Park.
