Information
Intertwined spatial developments of urbanisation and globalisation processes are central to the Human Geography curriculum. As a Human Geography student, you will explore these sociospatial dynamics at different geographical scales from different perspectives. Core challenges investigated in the programme include urban inequality, demographic changes, regional economic disparities, geopolitical conflicts and identities, uneven development as well as environmental issues. In the context of urban and political geographies, the programme offers you a broad range of geographical sub-disciplines and skills to engage with the multi-scalar character of social, political, economic and cultural processes, and the associated spatial structures. Current sociospatial relations are studied in several domains (social, economic, political, cultural and environmental) through the lenses of space, place and scale.
