Credit Hours: 3

An introduction to the basic concepts of physical geography that will involve the examination of the physical systems and processes which create many types of landforms and shape the earth's environment. In addition to introducing students to the concepts relevant to the physical world patterns, such as those relating to the makeup of the earth, weathering and mass movement, ocean currents and wind interaction, glaciation and periglaciation, this course also helps them understand the creation of the physical world as a systematic rather than a random formation.
