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 graduate certificate program, provides training and competency in geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, global positioning system (GPS) and related technologies.
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.
L'objectif de cette formation "Innovation et territoire" est de former des chercheurs et des professionnels (responsables de projet, chargé de mission, chargé d'études, consultant, conseiller...) en aménagement, développement local et urbanisme capables de répondre aux attentes des collectivités, des entreprises ou des associations qui cherchent à développer de nouvelles compétences et à disposer dans leurs équipes de professionnels capables de s'adapter aux nouveaux enjeux, d'imaginer, hybrider, concevoir, créer et développer autrement et avec d'autres, au-delà des frontières disciplinaires habituelles.
Academic training in state of the art in urban environmental research, including a cross-disciplinary outlook, and practical decision-making and problem solving skills.
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.
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.
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.
Human Geography is a research field which focuses on studying the spatial behaviour of people, firms and organisations. Or, to put it simply, it is a study that observes the relationship between human activities and their spatial environment. Because it is an integrative discipline, Human Geography serves as an excellent platform for integrating knowledge from various related disciplines, such as Sociology, Athropology, Psychology, International Relations, Economics, Business Administration and Development Studies.
The programme focuses on the deliberate construction and reconstruction of the environment. It involves research, planning and design of landscape to create, maintain, protect and enhance places.
This master aims at providing skills in a very modern discipline which integrates gathering, processing and delivering spatially referenced information. The University of Liege is the sole university in Belgium which has been offering this training since 1992 !
Transport Planners play a key role in ensuring that transport systems are efficient and equitable. To do so they need to understand the core principles, techniques and concepts that underpin the discipline. Compulsory modules ensure that all students, whatever their background, have a solid foundation including policy, economics, planning, modelling and data analysis. Optional modules then allow for specialisation and expertise in specific areas. The programme is designed for students from a wide range of backgrounds and equips them for a professional career in transport. It engages with a highly applied and practical subject, which is also academically rigorous and challenging.
The programme aims to offer students from a variety of academic backgrounds a broader and deeper understanding of borders and bordering processes in society. The programme provides students with an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of diverse societies and cultures in a multi-national educational environment, while carrying out research for a Master’s degree.
