Human Geography

<!—StartFragment—>

Human geography is one of the two major sub-fields of geography. Human geography is the study of human use and understanding of the world and the processes which have affected it. Human geography broadly differs from physical geography in that it has a greater focus on studying human activities and is more receptive to qualitative research methodologies. Human geography is concerned with the study of spatial patterns of interactions between human beings and their physical environment.

Human Geography combines economic and cultural geography to explore the relationships between humans and their natural environment, and to track the broad social patterns that shape human societies.
