FALL 2011 GEA 2000: WORLD REGIONAL GEOGRAPHY M W - F 10:00 - 10:50 AM Course Homepage: https://ecampus.fiu.edu/ Professor: Dr. Ricardo M. Gonzalez E-mail: [email protected] Office Hours: M W F 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM Department Location: Department of Global & Sociocultural Studies SIPA # 304 Department Phone: (305) 348-2247 This is an introductory Geography course that studies people and their relationships with the environment. In this course we will survey major regions of the world, study contemporary issues that pertain to each region, and learn conceptual themes that transcend regional boundaries. The class will offer you with the basic knowledge of the physical environment, political geography, population distribution, economic development, and ways of life in each region we cover. But much of geographical information cannot be contained in any textbook, or covered by any length of lectures. In this class, you will be introduced to some tools for geographical exploration that range from searching for information to critically processing it. You will not be required to memorize trivial facts. Instead, we expect you to understand important concepts and explain processes and ideas that shape a world region. Goals: At the end of the semester, I hope that you will: Have a basic grasp of the concepts and facts of world geography; Understand how human populations interact with their environments to make cultural landscapes in different parts of the world; Be motivated to keep up with and analyze current events reported in the news media; Know where to find information and how to conduct basic research on different parts of the world.
