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.
