Human Geography and Urban Environments

Human Geography and Urban Environments analyzes the spatial interactions of economic systems as well as political, social, cultural, environmental, technological, and other forces that influence the people, identities, landscape, development, and dynamics of the natural landscape, especially in urban environments. As the world’s human population becomes increasingly urbanized, the continuing challenges of urban growth and change, race and ethnicity in the city, cultural and physical aspects of urban planning process, and spatial aspects of urban political decision-making provide strong external demand for new geographic professionals with expertise in these areas.
