'Geography is the study of the physical features of the Earth and its atmosphere – including landscape development, weather and climate, and geologic concepts – as well as the influence of human activity – including cultural, economic, and political activity – on those physical features. Geography students, as they study the many aspects of our physically and culturally diverse world, tend to become more adept at tasks that require both spatial and critical thinking skills.
World Regional Geography covers the basic elements noted above but within a regional context. Ultimately, World Regional Geography is concerned with the physical and human characteristics that make the regions of our world distinctive. As you progress through the course, the units will discuss each major world region in detail, placing particular emphasis on cultural and societal structures. Regions will be discussed within a global framework in the hope that you will gain a better comprehension of how the world map is being defined and redefined. In addition, you will study key global issues such as international conflict and cooperation, environmental degradation, population growth, and globalization.
This course makes primary use of a comprehensive textbook to facilitate learning. The concepts presented in World Regional Geography will build upon one another as you progress through the course. Supplemental readings and online video lectures will be integrated throughout each unit as well.'
