This introductory course for first- and second-year students surveys geographic realms, regions, and concepts. Students explore the interaction between physical and human geographic features around the world. Map work locates important features in each realm. Class discussion includes the issues of population, environment, resources, quality of life, and changing economic development, commerce, and trade. The movements and migration of peoples, wealth, and poverty are also analyzed. Guests present their experiences in various cultures and several video segments illuminate the study.
