Major - People, Place and Environment

GEOG 1016  People, Place and Environment


Three hours of lecture and two hours of laboratory work per week for one term.




Students explore three central themes in human geography – people, place, and environment. Geographers study some of the most important issues of contemporary society, such as climate change, nationalism, environmental pollution, urbanization, inequality, racism, and food security, by examining the cultural, social, economic, and political processes that create the spatial patterns and relationships that modify landscapes. Students develop an ability to inspect more critically their own place in the world.
