Overview

Why study  Human Geography - Economic Geography programme offered at Radboud University

  • You will receive a thorough training in analytical approaches to study local-global interaction. You will also take part in fundamental discussions on globalisation, spatial inequality, innovation and the future of the capitalist system.
  • Although the foundation of this specialisation is economical and geographical, our approach to this theme is highly multidisciplinary to include related fields as sociology, spatial planning, public administration and history.
  • Over the past years, Radboud University has made a name for itself in the field of Human Geography for not shying away from critical debates and by researching topics in the field that are of social importance but not always favoured with large (EU) funding. We’re known for not staying on the beaten path.
