Why take this online World Geography course?
The World Regional Geography course is an introductory, 100-level course that, after beginning with basic concepts of geographical inquiry, examines 12 different regions of the world. In many ways, you will make a journey around the world in however many days it takes you to finish the course.
This Geog161 online course will broaden your horizons. It is about the interrelationship between humans and the physical environment in the context of how people engage in cultural uses of land, water, and air as resources such that definite spatial patterns can be noted at the local, regional, sub-continental, continental, hemispheric and global scales.
The world is an extremely complex entity, and this course only touches a small portion of the historical, geopolitical and socio-economic factors that help to explain how parts of the planet are alike but also different. It does, in its small way, help you recognize that you are a member of a highly interdependent set of cultures, nation-states and alliances that range from being in harmony to disharmony at any given time.
World Regional Geography classes online will help you answer important questions regarding people and places:
- What is there?
- Where is it?
- Why is it there?
- Why is it important that it is there?
To succeed in this online world geography course, you need to have a spirit of adventure and a curiosity regarding what various places do or do not have in common. You need to have the desire to learn about your entire world, not just what you know already. You will communicate your thoughts regarding relationships within and between places in the context of human-environmental interaction.
