GEOG 1020 World Regional Geography

4.5 - 0.0 - 4.5



Course Description

The course expands students' knowledge of the world beyond the borders of Nebraska. The course divides the earth into a manageable number of geographical areas (regions) and analyzes them in terms of their human and physical geographies. It gives particular attention to distinctions between the wealthy, technologically advanced regions of the earth and those areas that remain less developed. Students explore processes of globalization that increasingly link regions to one another. College-level reading skills are recommended for success in this course. (Formerly GEOG 2150)
