Geography is the science of the Earth that is concerned with land formations, terrain, inhabitants and phenomena. There are four traditional directions of research in this field: the spatial analysis of natural and human phenomena, physical study, the study of relations between man and land and Earth science. Geography aims at understanding the Earth with all its natural and artificial complexities.
As discipline, Geography can be divided into two areas of study: human and physical geography. Human Geography is focused on the human influence on the environment and the space it inhabits. Physical Geography studies the natural environment, the weather, vegetation, soil, water and land formations.
Geography is a base science that is necessary also in solving matters such as climate change, energy dependence, conflicts and war, globalization and even terrorism. Geography has also different applications like urban planning, community development, cartography, climatology, geoscience, transportation management, environmental management and many others in which potential students can specialize.
This MSc course explores current aspects of Earth science, investigating how the Earths lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere are dependent upon each other, interacting across a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. You will learn to critically evaluate current research and gain skills that allow you to update your knowledge of Earth science.
The Master of Applied Science (MAppSc) is a 180-point, coursework postgraduate degree. A candidate would normally be a graduate but the degree is also open to those with other relevant qualifications.
To understand the challenges of tomorrow, we need knowledge of natural resources, condition of the environment and the impact of human actions on it. At the Department of Geosciences and Geography, you will learn a multidisciplinary approach to research, honoring both natural and social sciences.
Human Geography offers the chance to study advanced topics in fields such as economic, political and social geography, whilst giving students the flexibility to work with the specific questions which interest them most in this broad field.
The aim of the new International Development Studies programme in English is to prepare professionals for careers in development policy and practice. The duration of the programme is 2 years. Students will be awarded the title of “Magister”, abbreviated as “Mgr.” which is equivalent to Master of Science (M.Sc.).
The aim of the programme is to provide knowledge and competence in dealing with land management issues, building adequate land administration systems as well as spatial governance as an infrastructure to implement land-related policies and land management strategies.
This Second Cycle Degree Programme aims to provide excellent proficiency in one of the Asian or North African languages (including microlanguages) as well as in-depth knowledge of their literature (or one of their kindred literatures), history and culture, in their various aspects, including philosophy and religion, society and institutions, archaeology and art.
Coastal and Marine Management is a cross-disciplinary master´s program that prepares students to engage with one of the most compelling and important subjects today: natural resource management and utilization.
Physical Geography at Aalborg University is aiming at analyzing the spatial extent of natural resources and the processes that shape and change the landscape. The environmental problems that arise from using resources such as water, soil and minerals is also at the core of physical geography.
The programme is suitable for graduates of any discipline who, for professional or personal reasons, wish to secure a stand-alone qualification in social sciences.
