Global Environments will introduce students to the issues involved in modern global development within a highly modified, rapidly changing natural environment. Modern environments are globally interconnected physical-societal systems formed by a range of spatially variable processes, which interact to create unique regional and global management issues. Global Environments will allow students to investigate environment-forming processes by introduction to the platform geographical skills of analysis, description and communication via a blend of traditional lecture and small group learning environments. The unit content will examine how humans across the world are part of, and also create, unique locations that have issues including hazard prevention, poverty and resource depletion.
