Population geography examines the dynamics of populations and their patterns of spatial settlement through time. Specifically, it will examine the main characteristics, changing size, and geographic distribution of populations, particularly in this age of intense globalization. The course covers fours main themes in global population: mobility and settlement; population and environment; population increase and decrease; and urbanization. Because of the broad scope of this subject matter, this course will provide a general overview of the scale of the diverse and complex patterns that operate between people and landscape.
