We embrace natural forces this term and examine the causes of earthquakes and their effects on the natural and cultural environment. We also look at our responses to them. After studying either the Christchurch 2010/2011 or the Kaikoura 2016 earthquake as our main case study, you will then choose and research a second earthquake from a different time or place to deepen your understanding.

Please note that this course will prepare you for an external and we will be practising exam writing skills.
