Humanities takes a look at people, places and events, both past and present, in an attempt to help students understand and appreciate the world in which they live. 

Geography, more specifically, helps young people to understand how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies and societies are interconnected. 

History on the other hand tends to focus more on individuals, groups and even entire national communities by examining concepts such as religion, politics and society.
