World Regional Geography offers an overview of the different regions which comprise the world. This course analyzes the relationship between the environment, economic development, culture and politics. In terms of the weekly pacing of the course, we will focus on a different world region each week. However, in a more general sense, we will focus on the root causes of global problems, not the specifics of each world region. In this way, a central goal of this class is to challenge the notion that world regions exists in isolation from other spaces. Instead, we will analyze how regions develop and change based on how they manage their relationships with other spaces.
