The course seeks to give students a geographic perspective on issues about important urban, economic, environmental, geomorphologic, and climatic issues in the world. As a discipline, Geography contains frameworks and tools to help in exploring, understanding, and finding potential solutions to these complex issues. Students will be expected to use map interpretation skills to analyze data and draw inferences and conclusions about real-world phenomena. Nearly everything happens in space—becoming aware of these spatial interactions, whether absolute (specific location) or relative (near/far from other events), can help us draw inferences and conclusions about real-world phenomena.
