GEOG 3340 - Cultural Geography

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: GEOG 1101 or GEOG 2105.
A thematic approach is applied to analyze human cultures, to examine world cultural regions, to note the spread of cultural traits, to interpret interactions between culture and environment, and to appreciate multiple traits of cultures and cultural landscapes. The five themes of region, diffusion, ecology, integration, and landscape are used to explore historical and contemporary issues of population, agriculture, politics, language, religion, ethnicity, popular culture, and urban spaces. The philosophy of the course is based on the premise that the built environment is a spatial expression of the beliefs, attitudes, and practices of a people.

Notes: Offered as an online course.
