GEOG 430
Human Use of the Environment

Week 0 Summary and Tasks


We’ll begin this semester with the first chapter from one of the leading Human-Environment Geography textbooks. This chapter is meant to make sure we are all on the same page. It offers a great introduction to some of the major themes we will encounter during the semester and will help you to understand what Human-Environment Geography is and how it might relate to some of the more specific issues we talk about in this course. 

Tasks for this week:

  • Read the Course Orientation and Syllabus (week 0) section on the course website and review all sections on Canvas.
  • Read Chapter 1 of Moseley, W. G., Perramond, E., Hapke, H. M., & Laris, P. (2014). An introduction to human-environment geography: local dynamics and global processes. John Wiley & Sons.
