Geography is not just about memorizing place names! Geography is about understanding physical, human and biological systems from a spatial perspective. In other words, geography is a study of the surface of the earth and everything that happens on it. This course looks at the variety of ways that we can map our planet and gain new understanding of our world. The course is structured with 3 components in each week: 1.

I earned a Masters in Urban Planning which included a World Cities seminar that required an extensive study of mapping the world throughout history, using a wide variety of sources, perspectives and analysis.
There are weekly mapping activities and a separate multi-week course project.
Paper, colored pencils, a world map or globe. An orange and black sharpie for week 1.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As part of the course, tutorials for how to use Google Earth, National Geographic Map-Maker and World Atlas are included. These may be used for completing the course project, however paper maps and a globe would also work well, so these are not required. If a student wants to save their work in Google Earth, they would need a free google account (google drive). If a student wants to save their work in National Geographic Map-maker they would also need to set up a free account. No account is needed for World Atlas, and no account is needed for students to just practice on Google Earth or NG Map-maker.
