01:450:103 Human Geography: Space, Place, and Location

Credits: 3

This introductory geography course explores human geography, a discipline that studies people and places. Specifically, students will learn how people organize space and society, how we interact with each other in places and across space, and how we make sense of others and ourselves in our local areas, regions, and the world. In this course we will cover a range of topics such as language, religion, development, migration, and the unequal distribution of power. We will pay particular attention to key geographic approaches to contemporary globalization,specifically, how global processes are unevenly distributed and differently manifested across the world.
