Masters in Geography

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.
