At AUP, courses in Mapping the World correspond to the social sciences and help students understand how human experience has been organized in and across time and space—and how various forms of social experience emerged spatially and historically around the globe. 

Courses that fulfill the Mapping the World requirement are numerous and varied—everything from social anthropology to social robotics, intercultural communication to contemporary feminist theory. Just as cartography is the study of making maps, study in the social sciences helps you explore social experience and organization—and “map” the human world.
