Geography is the study of the earth: its surface, climate, continents, countries, peoples, industries, and products. In this study of world geography, we will look at the physical and climatic characteristics of continents and the development of the people in those regions. M/J World Geography examines the effect of geography on the growth of human society, and also the effect of human society on the world itself. This course starts at our earliest beginnings, examining man’s adaptations to his environment, to his efforts to master the elements and use them to in a strategic manner to grow and prosper in the 15th century. It also explores current societies and their dependence on the land. Students will study such topics as agricultural societies, ancient civilizations, empires, trade, and migration.
