GES 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. This 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.
