Explore the world through Geography courses
Geography courses do more than teach you the name and location of key points around the world, they help you understand globalization on a deeper level. You will learn to identify, categorize and articulate not just physical elements, but also political, economic and social structures that shape the world.
Our geography courses will teach you to define and recognize natural borders, man-made divisions and develop an understanding of the interactions between human life and the environment. You can also study cultural factors that impact the way in which humans utilize their environment including settlement patterns, the modification of landscape and resource utilization.
Enroll in a geography course and explore interesting topics such as:
- Population and urbanization
- Climate and physical landscapes
- Cultural aspects of geography
- Identity and political geography
