GEOG 111: Human Geography of Global Issues

This course introduces you to basic concepts, processes and spatial relationships that affect human geographies. We will evaluate different ways in which human societies throughout the world are increasingly interconnected through the globalization of cultural, economic, political, population and subsistence systems. Through this process, you will become familiar with different subfields of human geography including their methods of inquiry and object of study. This course focuses primarily on geographical patterns at the international scale and thus employs current examples and cases from a variety of world regional contexts.
