World Regional Geography > Home


Course Description

This course introduces principles of geography as a spatial science in a study of world regions. After a survey of basic physical and human population characteristics of Earth, the essentials, i.e., environmental, historical, political, economic, and cultural components are synthesized into a regional framework generating distinctive realms, e.g., Subsaharan Africa, Middle America, and East Asia. Students are encouraged to explore selected realms via the vast resources of The Internet. (3 credits)
