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.
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.
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 MA in Global Urban Justice (GUJ) at the UoL, which is an ESRC recognized pathway to PhD qualification, is a unique postgraduate programme that combines cutting-edge theoretical and methodological training with ‘real-world’ experience of working with civil society organizations and campaign groups. It aims to meet a growing demand for interdisciplinary knowledge and expertise in the challenges of contemporary urbanization and social justice in cities and regions around the world.
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.
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.
M.Sc. in Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing for Landscape Planning at the Catholic University of Avila and the Moscow State University.
The UW-Madison Department of Geography is a leader in the field of geography and offers exceptional opportunities for graduate education. The Department has been consistently rated as one of the best in the country and for over 100 years has been the training ground for generations of geographers.
Our program introduces students to independent research while broadening and deepening their contact with a selected aspect of Geography.
Graduate studies in the Department of Geophysics involve academic course work and independent research. Our programs grant Ph.D. and M.S. degrees.
The overall aim of this course is to provide open distance learning for people working in commercial or public sector organisations who require core training and skills development in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), or for students who want to study in their own environment and in their own time.
River basins are of fundamental importance to the world’s population, and industry and academia throughout the world demand research training in water dynamics and management. The University of Leeds has a world-class reputation for water-related research and for GIS development in an environmental context and this MSc programme builds on this success.
Graduate study in the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering prepares students for leadership roles in practice, development, and research pertinent to environmental and urban problems. At the graduate level, students are expected to increase the depth of their academic training in their particular area of expertise, and to develop the capacity to collaborate with individuals from other disciplines. Because of its diversity of interests and association with other JHU departments, the department can offer a broad range of graduate programs based on the natural, social, and engineering sciences.
