In the Creation Mandate in Genesis 1:28, God instructs Adam to "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion...over every living thing that moveth across the earth." Geography has had a place in God's plan since creation. In this course, students will learn not only about the physical features of the land, but also how people interact with the land and each other. Students will be given an overview on the field of geography as well as learn map reading skills while studying the various geographical regions around the globe. Class time will be highly participatory. In addition to lectures and discussions, classes will include simulations, games, and opportunities for students to nurture critical thinking. Understanding geography is crucial to understanding the story of God's world.
