Reason 1: Fascination with geomorphology, landscape and natural events
Geography has always been my favourite subject since young. I have an interest in the environment around me, what it is composed of, how it is formed, shaped and influenced by human and natural factors.
I am very intrigued and fascinated in geomorphology processes and its landscape formation. I also find natural events such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and mass movements very interesting.
Reason 2: I love the environment- I want to learn more about climate change and sustainable development
I love the environment and would like to learn more about climate change and sustainable development. In fact, I am working towards a minor in sustainability. Geography allows one to gain knowledge about issues relating to the environment such as global warming and wastages. It allows me to understand the problem, and subsequently how to alleviate the problem and come up with solutions.
Reason 3: I love field trips!
I look forward to field trips as I am able to experience my learnings first hand and get a better and more thorough understanding on concepts. It also presents with many teachings that the theory does not cover, as real life situations does not account for ceteris paribus situations. I feel that such exposures are very helpful in cultivating one’s ability to think critically and creatively.
