This regional survey will examine the diverse geographic aspects of countries that are deemed to be part of the Eastern World: Southwest Asia and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, East Asia, South Asia, and Central Asia. The interrelationship between people and their geographic environments (physical, social, economic, political, demographic, cultural, historical environments) will be considered.
Coverage of countries and regions in this course will range from specific locational descriptions to consideration of broad regional elements. Students will be expected to learn basic place names, to understand geographic relationships and concepts as found in these countries, and to learn to think geographically.
