Human geography is an academic discipline regularly taught at the high school and university level that actually encompasses quite a few subdisciplines of geographic study. The traditional divisions of human geography study the following major fields. Populations and migration Urban geography Economic geography Cultural geography Political geography Within those fields, a slew of other research areas can be included under the umbrella of human geography. Areas like medical geography study the relationship between space and medical care (like the spread of infectious diseases or the impact that location has on quality of life). Political geography is a geopolitics field that tries to understand the geographic factors that influence how different countries interact. The content in this book will give you a working overview of the terms and concepts covered within the field of human geography. The materials are comparable to the content covered in a lower-level undergraduate college course or an upper-level high school course. This book is not an in-depth dive into any particular human geography topic. In fact, every topic included in this book could have entire books written about just that one idea. Many researchers have spent untold hours building the human geography field. The purpose of this book is to give you a taste of the breadth of human geography in easily digestible tidbits. Also, this is not a textbook. Instead, it is a starting place for where human geography can take you.
