Core Course Substitutions Course substitutions for required core courses are strongly discouraged in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Planning.
However, under certain extenuating circumstances, substitutions are allowed.
Graduates will be able to apply the scientific insights and practical skills acquired to topics as varied as development and marketing of places, tourism industries, planning, sustainability, cultural diversity.
With expertise gained during this Master’s, a graduate can be employed in a wide range of jobs, both in and outside the Netherlands, for example: In order to get admission to this Master's you will need a completed Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent, from a research university) from a geography-related discipline, such as Spatial Planning, Geography, Environment Studies.
This understanding is crucial to explaining and ameliorating contemporary environmental problems, including the privatization of natural resources, inequalities in access to food and water, injustices associated with environmental hazards and undesirable land uses, and the role of human activities in spurring large-scale environmental change.
GIScience and Spatial Analysis concentrates on the use of advanced geospatial technologies, and the development and use of spatial analysis methodologies, to applied research problems in human and environmental geography.The three tracks include: Human Geography studies the construction of space, place, and power.It encompasses the study of economic geographies (e.g., globalization and development), political geographies (e.g., geopolitical struggles and new social movements), and social and cultural geographies (e.g., identities and exclusions).Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply.Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.Thesis Option Students take six credit hours of electives at a level of 5000 or higher, keeping in mind that a minimum of ten hours is required at the 6000-level.At least one of the electives must be taken outside of the student’s track excluding GEO 6908, 69.Human geography is key to providing insights into contemporary spatial arrangements, including the role of cities within the global economy, locating urban-rural intersections in the production of uneven development, and how class, gender, and race shape struggles for social justice.Environmental Geography links the study of nature and society and considers the ways in which conventional divisions between human and non-human (natural) worlds are bridged through the production of socio-natures.At this initial stage however, we prioritise the enlistment of European military academies in the prize. The jury will consist of seven European experts in the field of military ethics, offering a combination of field experience (the practitioner’s perspective) and the academia (the theoretical perspective).
