Language of instruction:
GEO-37306 Global Landscapes and Place-Making
Note: This course can not be combined in an individual programme with GEO-10306 Human Geography.
In this course students learn to combine theoretical and conceptual thinking, and ways to analyse and understand the reciprocal relationships between humans and their environment. The course explores human geographical perspectives on the meanings of places and spaces for individuals and society. We critically examine the relationship between people and their environments from a variety of angles, including the social construction of nature and wilderness, and the relationship between nature and human health and wellbeing. The course will provide students with an essential introduction to human geography as it is applied to understanding interactions between society and the natural environment.
After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- understand and apply geographical concepts associated with the interaction between people and the environment;
- understand the main tenets of the social construction of nature;
- analyze the relationship between the environment and human health and wellbeing;
- analyze and evaluate different interpretations of the environment.
- literature study;
- written exam (50%);
- paper (50%).
