Importance of geo-literacy:
Geography explains the past, illuminates the present, and prepares us for the future. The study of geography is more than just memorizing places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together while making the world a better place.

The primary purpose of the course is to build systematic understanding of how Earth's physical and human geography came to be and continues to evolve.
to teach students about the world and how it works, empowering them to succeed and to make it a better place.
