World Geography

Welcome to the World Geography course at New World University.

This course takes a regional approach to globalization and world geography. Fundamental geographic concepts and regions are presented in concise chapters that provide a foundational framework for understanding development patterns around the world. Essential topics include location, the environment, and global economic dynamics. Important theories, concepts, and principles are utilized throughout the textbook for each region.

This course relies with our gratitude on the first edition of World Regional Geography: People, Places, and Globalization by Royal Berglee, and as such its long form readings are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License.
