GEOG 180 - Field Studies in Geography

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course will examine, both theoretically and experientially, a range of methodologies and techniques utilized in field studies in physical, human, and environmental geography. This examination also involves understanding the processes of globalization and modernization and their impacts on the various sites that are observed in the field. Key concepts such as scale, time, succession, and sustainability will be used to observe and understand the diverse landscapes of urban, suburban, and rural spaces. GEOG 180 will be taught in the field, since that is where geographers seek the information that provides the basis of the great majority of their research. It is designed in a flexible manner that will allow it to be incorporated into a Hofstra study abroad program or a U.S.-based study-travel program, or to be offered as a locally taught course that will involve day trips into the field within the greater metropolitan area.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
GEOG 001  or 002  or GS 001  or 002  or permission of the department chairperson.
