About

The Geographies of Globalization: Markets and Metropolises programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt  builds on the strengths of the Department of Human Geography in Frankfurt and offers two profiles: Urban Studies and Economic Geography.

Overview

In our global age, people face a multiplicity of challenges across different spatial scale levels ─ from the local to the global. Understanding and dealing with these challenges is at the centre of the Geographies of Globalization: Markets and Metropolises programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt.

At the start of the program, students take basic modules in human geography and globalization studies. Subsequently, they choose advanced modules on "Culture and Society", "Economy and Region" and "Politics and Governance" in one of the two profiles. Students gain additional experience in their profile in courses on research design, field trips and the Master's thesis.

 Two international lecture series on economic geography and urban studies with world-renowned academics accompany the program. This offers students the unique opportunity to engage in discussions at the cutting edge of the discipline. With its array of courses on professional practice, the program links a strong research orientation with relevant applied problems.
