GEOG 245 - Regional Geography of Post-Soviet Union


This course deals with the complexities of the geography of the world’s largest set of states, the Post-Soviet Union. Discussions center on the growth and expansion of Russia in pre-evolutionary times and the solidification and demise of the Soviet Union in the 20th century. Particular attention is drawn to the physical setting, settlement patterns, population growth and composition, ethnic groups, economic patterns, relationships of the Post-Soviet Union with other regions of the world, and prospects for the future. Case method instruction is used in this course. Not offered in 2013-2014 or 2014-2015. (4 Credits)
