Learning Outcomes

To be able to explore and analyze the deeper casual mechanisms that re-produce global macro-regional uneveness;  and relate this unevenness with certain socio-spatial parameters such as the population, culture, tradition or climate.

To be apple to apply these concepts across global macro-regions using specific examples and understand how regional diversity and local-to-global shape the mosaic of contemporary world.

General Competences

  1. Search for, analysis and synthesis of data and information, with the use of the necessary technology

  2. Working independently

  3. Respect for difference and multiculturalism

In particular, the course will explore issues such as the reasons why some macro-regions more developed than others and relate this unevenness with certain socio-spatial parameters such as the population, culture, tradition, climate etc The key geographical concepts that shed light to the questions on hand are location, region, place, scale, and human environment interaction. Applying these concepts across global macro-regions and using specific examples students will gain a deeper insight into the planet they inhabit, and understand how regional diversity and local-to-global shape the mosaic of contemporary world.
