Courses in Geography

Geography studies the complex spatial relationships, interactions, and processes within the cultural and natural environments of the Earth’s surface.  It is a unique, diverse field bridging the social sciences (human geography) and the natural sciences (physical geography). Human geography concerns the understanding of the dynamics of cultures, societies and economies, and physical geography concerns the understanding of the dynamics of physical landscapes and the environment.
