Geography (GEOG 041)

BYU Online High School

Did you know that Marovo Lagoon in the Solomon Islands is the largest saltwater lagoon in the world? The lagoon is formed between two islands, protected by two barrier reefs, and has some of the best snorkeling opportunities in the world, with chances to see sunken WWII planes. 

Did you know that one-third of the world’s tropical rain forests are located in Brazil? Tropical rain forests only cover about seven percent of the earth’s surface, but nearly half of the world’s species of plants and animals live in them. 

In this course, you will earn required high school Geography course credit as you learn about the world around you. If you want to know more about the wonders of the world, or if you aspire to be a nature lover and conservationist, a world traveler, or a history buff, Geography 041 will keep you engaged. 

This popular online high school course allows students to explore the world without leaving home—from the edge of the atmosphere to the core of the earth and everything in between. This course will teach you how to locate the countries of the world, and it teaches fascinating facts about the lands, peoples, and cultures these countries contain.  

This course covers six major branches of geography: 

  • The world in spatial terms 

  • Human systems 

  • The uses of geography 

  • The environment and society 

  • Places and regions 

  • Physical systems 

Each of these major branches is taught with highly visual photos, maps, diagrams, and interactive activities. This online course is no generic textbook! GEOG-041 will help you to see the world in a new way. Talk to your advisor about taking Geography if you still need this credit!
