The Earth: Linking Human and Physical Environments

The Earth: Linking Human and Physical Environments

This is an introductory course focusing on issues in both human and physical geography that affect communities around the world.  The course is focused on modes of critical thinking that stress both considerations of “space and place” and the interconnected roles of the “local” and “global” in shaping our world.  Topics included are the global distribution of population, migration, popular culture, climate/weather, ethnicities, environment, resources, agriculture, urbanization, and economic systems. Students will participate as a class research trip to the tea producing region of Thai Nguyen, Vietnam to explore how contemporary global human and environmental changes are affecting the lives of local people.
