Greiner ISBN: 978 0471724919 Course Description A thematic approach to the study of human groups and activities around the world, including agricultural practices, demographic trends, political behavior, religious beliefs, language patterns, folk and popular cultures, ethnicity and ethnic landscapes, urbanization, and industrialization. Geography courses help students understand why things are where they are on the surface of the Earth. In other words, students will develop a spatial perspective in thinking about their surroundings. In this course, we will develop this spatial perspective as it pertains to certain aspects of culture, such as cultural diversity around the world, religion, language, ethnicity, rural and urban culture, globalization, and many other topics. We will learn how these aspects of culture spread across the Earth, how they interact with each other, and how they interact with the natural environment. : This web site is your source for lecture notes and up to date grades for this course.
