Studying the spatial behaviour of people, firms and organisations.
Human Geography is a study that observes the relationship between human activities and their spatial environment. Because it's an integrative discipline, human geography serves as an excellent platform for integrating knowledge from various related disciplines, such as sociology, anthropology, development studies, psychology, international relations, economics and business administration.
You can choose a specialisation of the Master'in Human Geography that best reflects your interests:
You'll come to understand the backgrounds and causes, the mental and physical borders related to (international) conflicts, war and terrorism as well the strategies and challenges organisations intervening in these conflicts deal with.
Learn to understand and interpret advanced theories and practices of leisure and tourism and their influence on the social and physical environment.
Study the role of regions as locations for economic activities. Focus on the meaning of local and global culture, and policy-making at various spatial levels.
Learn more about crucial geopolitical and social developments in Europe. Dive into current debates on issues related to sovereignty and identity, European mobility, the European internal market and cross-border cooperation.
Investigate the effects of globalisation and migration processes on economies, societies and resources on different parts of the world. The main focus lies on the Global South and its interaction with the Global North.
Focus on how the city is represented and how city images emerge and are contested. You'll study the hybrid nature and the daily struggles in urban life, cultural diversity and the political economy of the city.
