GEOG 400 Human Population and the Environment




Demography is the study of human populations - size, composition, distribution, movement, and the processes through which populations can change. Human populations are intimately connected with their natural environment and this course will explore the complex and reciprocal relationship between them, how people respond to changing environments, and potential policy responses to these effects. Local and global scales will be considered, with particular focus on issues of social inequality and the impacts of climate change and ecological degradation.
