GEOG 102  Geography of Human Activities (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, Human Geography; name change pending UGC approval.

GEOG 110  Geography of Environmental Systems (MS)                 3 credits
The study of principles and processes that shape and/or control climate, earth materials, landforms, soils, and give logic to their integrated patterns of world distributions. The course is taught using graphic rich presentations that provide numerous visual examples of topics discussed in class. These graphic presentations will also be available to students for additional study through the UMBC Library E-Reserves. 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.
