GEO 230 - Economic Geography Credits: 3


This course investigates regional economic processes and associated spatial
patterns at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. With a focus on sustainability, the
spatial economy is considered both in terms of the factors of production on the one
hand and the impact of economic activity on the environment, ecosystems, and human
well-being on the other. Basic analytical tools relevant to analyzing and understanding regional economic growth and development, human behavior, and spatial interactions are covered. An introductory course in Geography is strongly suggested and solid math skills are required.
