World Regions and Issues

This course introduces geographic themes and critical issues of relevance in our global society and will enhance awareness and appreciation of other peoples and places. Through this regional survey of lands and life, students grasp the differences and commonalities among the world’s physical and human landscapes, learn how they impact life in these regions, and gain an understanding of the connections to our own lives. Regional profiles include the analysis of varied issues of the physical environment, population distributions, cultural landscapes, and select historical, political and economic issues, primarily via the spatial point of view. This regional approach consistently emphasizes map work.
