G110 | ALL | Staff


Human geographers are concerned with describing and explaining the
spatial relations of human activity.  G110, the basic course in human
geography, introduces students to several subfields of study,
including population, urban, economic, cultural and political
geography, as well as fundamental geographic concepts.  The course
focuses on the spatial aspects of population growth and distribution,
cultural differentiation, urban growth and decline, the spread of
ideas and innovations, regional development, and the location of
economic activity, as well as problems associated with these
processes.

G110 is offered in a lecture format and is taught in relatively small
sections.  There is no discussion section.  Grading is usually based
on student performance on exams, including a final exam, and assigned
exercises and projects.  G110 fulfills the SHSI distribution
requirement.
