Activity

Over the last year, students in GEOG 300, Global Awareness, and GEOG 301, Int’l Environmental Issues and Globalization, published papers on public blogs under the instruction of Dr. Laura Johnson.
 
Students in GEOG 300 created an ‘Encyclopedia of Objects of Concern,’ in which they creatively examined how seemingly mundane, ordinary objects connect people, places, and beings across the globe. Check it out here: https://humboldtglobalawareness.weebly.com
 
And in GEOG 301, students collectively developed case studies of resistance, re-imagining, and re-building, collaborating to probe innovative movements, organizations, and frameworks. Check it out here: https://reimaginetheworld.weebly.com

As part of its continuing global outreach, the HSU Geography Department is again offering the China/Tibet Field Studies Program. Since the beginning of the program in 2000 HSU undergraduate students have pursued a wide range of topics while exploring and documenting the rapidly changing natural and cultural landscapes of these regions. The design and implementation of a community service project on the Tibetan Plateau will be a hallmark of next year’s program. Open to all majors, prerequisite courses are scheduled for Spring 2019.
