Graduate students should enroll in GEOG 5400 and will be held to higher standards and/or more work. This course investigates domestic and international distributions of population growth, fertility, mortality, and migration. Historical evidence dating to the industrial revolution and earlier exposes dynamic local, regional, and global changes in all of these demographic characteristics of societies. On topics including health inequalities, urbanization, resource use, migration politics, and environmental sustainability, among others, students in this class use interdisciplinary perspectives to conduct novel research about dilemmas facing communities around the world. Furthermore, students in this class use individual- and population-level theories of human behavior to consider solutions to these urgent problems.
