Geography

The Master in Geography aims at analysing the spatial extent of natural resources and the processes that shape and change the landscape. The core of the programme concerns the environmental problems arising from the use of resources such as water, soil and minerals.

With a Master in Geography, you will be prepared to analyse environmental challenges. You will be able to participate and lead work at all organisational levels in relation to use, protection and planning of natural resources in a global context. The study programme integrates ecological understanding with fundamental understanding of the governing processes shaping resources of the Earth. 

Studying Geography you will work with questions like:

  • How can we preserve our natural ressources?
  • How do climate changes affect our nature and our environment?
  • Which elements damage our ecosystem and how?

Field work

The study programme is characterised by laboratory work, relevant field work and excursions. During your studies, you have plenty of opportunity to experience field work as you get the possibility to go out in nature and collect data for your experiments and projects.
