Geography be one way the creation of 21st century skills, where geography can help students develop global awareness and allows them to be creative and innovative (Nagel, 2008). Seeing these benefits, teachers candidates can understand materials and learning geography in order to guide students towards global awareness. This case study was carried out to the students of primary school teacher candidates with questionnaires and interview techniques. The results showed that the students perspective on the material of geography is a branch of social science that studies the environment and its relationship with humans. While the student perspective on learning geography is the interaction between students and teachers in order to understand the material geography.
