Intertwined spatial developments of urbanization and globalisation processes are central to the Human Geography curriculum. As a Human Geography student, you will explore these sociospatial dynamics at different geographical scales from different perspectives. Core challenges investigated in the programme include urban inequality, demographic changes, regional economic disparities, geopolitical conflicts and identities, uneven development as well as environmental issues. In the context of urban and political geographies, the programme offers you a broad range of geographical sub disciplines and skills to engage with the multi-scalar character of social, political, economic and cultural processes, and the associated spatial structures.
Human Geography seeks students with an academic Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in Human Geography, or in a related social science discipline, such as Sociology, Cultural Anthropology and Sociology, Political Science, Economics, and Bèta-Gamma and/or Future Planet Studies (provided it includes a major Human Geography). All applicants are expected to have a solid basis in the field of human geography studies with at least (an equivalent of) 30 ECTS credits earned during previous studies. Applicants should have a solid basis in social science research methodology reflected by the completion of at least (an equivalent of) 20 ECTS credits during previous study.
