GEOG 113 - World Regional Geography: People, Places and Globalization


It is crucial to understand the biophysical and cultural particularities of different world regions as well as the forces that bind them together. This course begins with an exploration of global flows and connections, and then takes us on a scholarly tour of the world, with stops in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the Americas. Along the way we’ll systematically investigate major human and physical geography themes such as population dynamics and migration, agricultural change, human-environment interactions, health and disease, economic change and development, urbanization, and cultural shifts. This course is an alternative to GEOG 111 - Human Geography of Global Issues  as well as GEOG 115 - Thinking Geographically: The Fundamentals of Human Geography . Students should take one course or the other as an introduction to the field or the major. (Students can also earn credit equivalent to this course, GEOG 111  or  GEOG 115  by scoring a 4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement exam in Human Geography). Offered every year. (4 Credits)
