GEOG 102  Human Geography (SS or C)                               3 credits
Study of the distribution of human activities and the causes and consequences of these distributions, including population, resources, economic activity, urban and rural settlements, and cultural phenomena. Recommended as one of the first two courses to be taken by prospective majors. Note: Formerly listed as GEOG 200. For more information see www.research.umbc.edu/~amey/index.htm or contact amey@umbc.edu.

GEOG 110  Physical Geography (MS)                                 3 credits
Study of the principles and processes of climate, earth materials, landforms, soils and vegetation that give logic to their integrated patterns of world distribution. The course will be taught using graphic rich presentations that provide numerous visual examples of topics discussed in class. This course is ideal for the non-science major who wants to gain an appreciation for how the physical earth processes operate without the need for a strong science background.
