The world has become a global society in which various cultures and belief systems must coexist with each other. Understanding these cultures makes us more accepting and enriches our own life experience. This course will help us comprehend how humans shape their lives and their environments because of their geography. Geography teaches "the why of the where" through both physical and cultural aspects. Although both are important, this course will focus on the cultural elements that define societies, such as identity, ethnicity, gender roles, religions, and language.
