GEOG 1035.03: Introduction to Human Geography.
Human geography examines the ways that people perceive, use, and alter the landscapes they occupy. Two themes run throughout the class. One theme deals with the aspects of culture that characterize different social groups. These are matters of material culture as well as group behaviour, and belief systems. The second theme has to do with the systems of production, livelihood, spatial organization, and administration that societies erect. Interwoven with these themes is the interaction of human societies with each other and their environments. The class introduces the principal tools of human geographers: maps, demography, and analysis of cultural patterns.
NOTES: This class cannot be used to meet the life or physical science subject requirement for the BA degree.
