Tho it does involve a lot of colouring-in

Isn't it a "humanity" which lies in the middle?

It depends at which level really. At degree level you can obviously do BA Bsc which answers the questions to an extent. It can be either depending on the modules/topics you are taught.

People, especially my teachers say that Geo is a "colour pencil" subject as in their days one terms work was to basically draw/colour in a map of europe. And thats like in the 1980's.

I also believe that Geo, was known as ecological science before. (or something like that)

It's a humanity, like history and theology.

But, I'd say it's MUCH more scientific than any of the other humanities.

As I said in the other thread there are two strands to geography

Human Geography which is an art of the same ilk as politics/sociology

and

Physical Geography which is a science

A-Level Geography is considered a Science by virtually all universities. For those who have not studied it, it involves absolutely no colouring in, maps, or names of countries captial cities (at least my A-Level didn't). To demonstrate the difficultly, two people in my year got C's in geography but got higher grades in Physics and Maths.

Some people I know say the only skills you need for Biology are colouring in, cutting things out and sticking them down. Well, the people were physics people who said that...

If it moves it's biology, if it stinks it's chemistry, if it doesn't work it's physics
