Find out more information about Geography

Geography is divided into two inter-connected sub-disciplines: physical geography and human geography. Physical geography uses plenty of techniques and information from cartography, while human geography analyses topics related to human society such as agriculture, economy, population distribution, etc. The interaction between humans and the Earth is an object of study especially for students in a Master’s degree in geography.

The traditional fields that are studied during such a programme concern land formations, inhabitants, terrain and the derived phenomena. Specializations can be taken in physical study, relations between man and land, Earth science and the spatial analysis of natural and human phenomena. The main skill that students gain after a Master degree in geography is the understanding of the complex natural and artificial mechanism of the Earth.

Geography is also one of the basic sciences in education and helps students acquire skills in matters of conflict and war, energy dependence, climate change, globalization and terrorism. Graduates can easily get employed as cartographers, international development workers or tourism officers.
