The Greek roots of the word geography literally mean geo ‘the world’ and graphei ‘to write’ so geography is focused on writing about the world. Geography encompasses two forms of writing about the world — physical geography and human geography.
The emphasis in human geography is on writing about humans in the world in the sense of where they are, how they interact with landscapes and spaces, what kinds of landscapes they create, what meanings they attribute to various spaces, places, and landscapes, and so on.
At Athabasca University you receive a social science credit for human geography courses.
