GEG 100


Geography is the science that studies the relationships among geographic areas, natural systems, society, cultural activities, and the interdependence of all this over space. The Association of American Geographers (AAG) describes modern geographic education using five key themes: location, place, movement, region, and human-Earth relationships.

Geography examines the interrelationships between humans and the environment. As a spatial human-Earth science, it strives to synthesize and integrate the physical and cultural diversity of the planet we live in.

Geography 100 is an introductory course to basic geographic concepts.  Weather and climate, landforms, Earth’s resources and human activities.  The course also explores the constantly changing distribution of physical features, people, languages, religions, cities, and economic activities. The textbook in use emphasizes:

The interrelationship between humans and the natural environment. The basic principles of human geography that can be studied and demonstrated in our local communities and the theme that geography is dynamic.

This course is an approach to helping students understand the human-Earth relationships and be aware of the environmental challenges awaiting us in this new millennium.
