The Master of Geography programme is a two-year advanced study organised by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the K.U.Leuven. This interuniversity masters programme provides the students with comprehensive training in spatial approaches to social and/or natural phenomena.
The programme provides a deeper understanding of geographical problems and methods, knowledge to augment the theoretical debate within the discipline, and training in the use of geographical research techniques.
The global aim of the masters programme is to generate geographers that can play an active role in contemporary society.
The following specialisations are offered:
Geographers study the interaction between human societies and their environments, they characterise the resulting regions and localities, and they analyse the spatial distributions and processes of particular natural and human phenomena.
Being in equal parts a natural science and a social science, and equipped with geographical information science techniques, geography integrates the study of physical and human systems.
In this way, geographers have long applied integrated, multidisciplinary approaches to solve real-world problems on all spatial scales, from local to global. Undoubtedly there exists a growing demand for competent professionals in the broad field of the geo-sciences.
