Why do uneven geographies between people, neighbourhoods, cities, regions and countries develop? How do processes of globalisation and localisation affect firms and industries, people and places? What drives geographical changes – and are the geographies of such change socially and environmentally just? What can governments, companies, NGOs, activists and other actors at all scales do to address the big challenges of our time? These are the kind of questions human geographers ask and address.
The Master's programme in Human Geography from Lund University builds on the internationally recognised research by the academic staff at the Department of Human Geography. Our courses introduce you to the theoretical foundations as well as the research frontiers of the field, and they prepare you to develop and carry out your own advanced research in the MSc thesis. Through activities such as excursions, laboratories, internship, guest lectures and assignments, theory is linked to practice.
Studies in human geography prepare you for a career in physical planning, environmental issues, urban development, landscape changes or economic development.
