As the human population marches toward 10 billion people, understanding where people live, how they are connected, and how they are shaping different parts of the planet is essential.  Host Dr. Alexander B. Murphy opens the door to the field of human geography, a vital perspective for making sense of the rapidly changing, increasingly interconnected world of the 21st century.  He shows us that if we cannot think geographically we are bound to fail in confronting future challenges.

In this exciting eight part series, Human Geography: Making Sense of Planet Earth, renowned human geographer Dr. Alexander B. Murphy shows us how geographical concepts and insights are reshaping how we understand the challenges of a planet. Traveling the globe, Dr. Murphy demonstrates how seeing the world spatially is a key to surviving and prospering in the 21st century.
