Society, Space, Environment: Introducing Human Geography (GEOG 1100)
This course introduces students to human geography - the study of how humans shape their world, considered from
spatial and environmental perspectives. The course addresses the concepts, methods, techniques and applications of
geographic analysis and how human geographers employ these approaches to investigate and understand the cultural, ecological, political, and economic dimensions of human societies. More specifically, the course focuses on the processes that produce spatial patterns of human activities by examining the links between the global and local, the unevenness of political and economic development, interactions between society and nature, processes of urbanization, and the geographies of culture. The overall purpose of this course is to provide students with the foundation for more advanced course work in geography as well as other social science disciplines. In doing so, it explores both quantitative and qualitative methods as well as theoretical perspectives.
