World Regional Geography
Credits: 3Catalog #20809289
World Regional Geography introduces students to the basic physical and cultural geographies of the world's major regions (e.g., Central Asia, the Caribbean). Emphasis is placed on exploring what makes each region environmentally and culturally distinct, on regional human-environment relationships and associated environmental issues, and on the historical and contemporary linkages between the world's regions. Course themes are placed in the context of globalization, including its historical periods (e.g., European colonialism). The world's regions have become increasingly interconnected through transnational flows of people, plants, capital, and microbes, among other things. This course examines how and why the world has become more interconnected, and how globalizing processes have shaped the political, economic, ecological, and cultural character of each world region.
Note: Fees for fall classes are not displayed at this time because tuition rates are not yet defined by the Wisconsin Technical College System Board. Rather than provide incorrect information, no fees for fall classes will be displayed until tuition rates are received. It is estimated that fall fees will be displayed later in May 2015. Once fees are available, updated costs will appear in your student financial account.
