GEOG 1000 - World Regional Geography

Hours: 4
This course provides students with an understanding of the basic principles of geography and how they relate to the study of world regions. The course emphasizes how physical and human characteristics affect each other to make regions distinctive. The physical environment includes landforms and climate while the human landscape is characterized by culture, language, religion, diet, and economic development. The course analyzes how globalization is transforming the traditional forces that served to create nation-states. Since this course meets Otterbein’s requirements for teacher certification in Ohio, assignments will be provided that help students to learn how to teach geography.
