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.
