Human Geography is a new Master’s programme that started in September 2017. It stems from the former Economic Geography and Urban Geography programmes. You can specialize in one of the two fields by choosing a track:
Urban Geography: Neighborhoods & Residential Dynamics: This track focuses on relocation between different living environments over time and the consequences of these relocation for cities and neighborhoods;
Urban Geography: Daily Life & Public Spaces: This track focuses on on daily life. You will learn who participates in which work, shopping and leisure activities.
Economic Geography: Business & Location: This track focuses specializes in entrepreneurship - from large multinational corporations to small-scale local business activity and start-ups.
Economic Geography: Regional Development & Policy: This track studies the life cycle of regions.
Urban regions are bubbling, dynamic places where people get together and generate new ideas. They are the grounds for innovation and economic growth. In the Human Geography Master's programme you learn how urban and economic issues are interwoven.
This Master’s programme has an international character. We welcome students from around the world onto the programme. You will go on an international field trip and can complete your Master's thesis project and/or internship abroad.
This Master’s programme gives you a thorough understanding of important urban and economic issues. You will receive comprehensive training in the methodological and critical analytical skills needed to find possible solutions for challenges in urban regions. Working from a scientific and theoretical foundation, you come into contact with the daily practice. Through guest lectures and practical assignments (active learning), you will learn what graduates do and be able to determine where you would be most at home.
