POSC 160 - Geography and International Politics

3 hours
The purpose of this course is to provide students with a general introduction to world geography and the significant role it plays within international politics. In short, this course is designed to teach students where things are in the world and why it matters. In linking these two questions, this course will rely heavily on the use of maps while discussing a range of current international political issues including: border disputes, civil and interstate wars, religion and politics, natural resource competition, economic development, democratization, and many others. This course will give students a proper knowledge of world geography during times of increasing globalization and growing international interconnectedness.

This course will satisfy the core area requirement in social sciences.
