Introductory Human Geographies (GOG 102)

This course examines key concepts and understandings in Human Geography and forms an introduction to the sub-discipline. Space and Place are fundamental to understanding human societies and structures. Key themes include modes of production and consumption; demography and migration; inequalities and development; globalisation; and exploration of urban and rural spaces through the lens of political, economic, social and spatial contexts throughout human history.
