Human Geography Courses
Human Geography encompasses the study of human societies and human environments. Understanding and helping to resolve conflicts and crises makes Human Geography an immediately socially-relevant discipline. Human geographers make an essential contribution to environmental management, urban planning, and the management of social and economic change. A Human Geography major may be usefully combined with a Physical Geography major.
