In other words, human geography is the study of the spatial organization of human activities and the meanings attached to the places where activities take place. Human geographic inquiry extends from the scale of the individual to that of the entire world.

The course is an overview of the field and acts as a foundation for subsequent human geography courses offered by the School, and for general global understanding and awareness.
