Overview

Why study Human Geography - Cultural Geography and Tourism  specialisation at  Radboud University

  • he programme takes an emancipatory approach to the field of Human Geography, meaning that we engage with the less privileged in society. We also take a very theoretical approach to this field while never losing sight of the social relevance of what we are studying.
  • The programme focuses as much on mainstream theory as on alternative ones. This will help you develop an academic attitude that allows you to be critical when it comes to your own views, research and findings.
  • Although the foundation of this specialisation is geographical, our approach to this theme is highly multidisciplinary to include related fields as cultural studies, psychology, anthropology, economics, spatial planning and environmental policy studies.
  • 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.
