No one is an island. The community where you live, the food you eat, and the people you know are all part of a global chain of connections. Humans have transformed the planet over the past 10,000 years, and today, thanks to our transportation infrastructure, telecommunications, and a restless economy, the pace of globalization is accelerating. It is more important than ever to understand this chain of connections in order to tackle some of the biggest questions about human life on earth:

Is our current population growth sustainable?
How will we adapt to the changing climate?
Why are some nations rich and others poor?
What does globalization mean for local cultures?
What is the relationship between geography and the nation-state?

Tackle these questions and more in Understanding Cultural and Human Geography, a groundbreaking course that surveys the geographical context for human activity. Over the course of 24 eye-opening lectures, Professor Paul Robbins of the University of Wisconsin-Madison takes you on an interdisciplinary voyage across time and around the world to consider the dual nature of our relationship with "place." You'll see how our environment influences human life, and you'll consider the way human life, in turn, influences the environment.

If you took a high school geography course, you likely spent your time memorizing countries and capitals, oceans and continents, rivers and mountain ranges. This is "descriptive geography," a straightforward catalog of what the world looks like. But the field of geography is much more complex, much more dynamic, and much more human than a course emphasizing memorization would have you believe.

Understanding Cultural and Human Geography shows you the full range of the geographer's purview. Beyond simple description, this course reveals the underlying structures that explain why the world is the way it is. You'll see that geography is truly interdisciplinary, covering such a broad range of fields as:

Cultural Studies

Professor Robbins introduces you to each of these discrete fields and the connections between them, so you come away with a comprehensive understanding of human activity on earth. Understanding global trends and connections-from environmental changes such as deforestation to the way money and labor slosh around the globe-will give you new insights into the story of human civilization and current events.
