HIS 300 World and Regional Geography

This course will focus on the interactions between people within their regional physical and cultural environments and their interactions with other groups and societies around the world.  Students will develop the ability to read maps, learn location and the physical and cultural characteristics of major world regions, and examine the political and economic interactions within and among world societies in the context of geographic location, economic and social well-being, mechanisms of commerce, and the environment.   
To meet the objectives of this course, a thematic approach to understanding cultural and environmental interaction will entail examining world societies through the lenses of human and physical geography utilizing the 5 Themes of Geography:  Location, Movement, Region, Place, and Human-Environment Interaction.
