Regional Studies helps students learn and understand a region's geography, its characteristics, major environmental and social issues, and its position in an increasingly globalized world by examining its physical environment, human conditions, the environmental-human interactions, and its role in the international political economy of the 21st century.
These courses are only suggestive. Faculty members may tailor the selection of courses to the need and background of individual students. The department also suggests the inclusion of courses from other departments or from a formal minor as part of the requirements of this AOS.
