If you ask me, I agree it is rather old-hat.

When I had to make a choice in school between Geography, History and Literature (I could only take 2 humanities at a time for O Levels) I went with Geography and Literature. I learnt a lot more about history in my Literature class that I found interesting and more revealing about human behaviour and society etc than I ever did during History class in the preceeding years. Human geography did tackle a lot of History as well, and had relevant ideas about demographics, settlements, policies and other sociopolitical issues.
