The global aim of the master is to generate geographers that can play an active role in our contemporary society.
- The highly competitive programme is jointly offered by the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at KU Leuven and the Department of Geography at VUB and is firmly rooted in current research at both universities.
- A strong focus on methods and techniques combined with analytical strength and a broad theoretical background makes you a versatile researcher, prepared to take up a key role in interdisciplinary teams tackling the core challenges of the future like climate change, urbanisation, land use management, migration...
Geographers study the interaction between human societies and their environments, and are able to analyse the spatial distributions and processes of particular phenomena.
We witness a growing demand for competent professionals in the broad field of geo-sciences. As a graduate you may be recruited by surveying companies, mapping agencies, service and utility providers and public entities.
You will also be placed high on the recruitment list of international administrations dealing with land use planning, disaster management, and environmental conservation. If you pursue a career in research and education, you should complete your studies with a relevant PhD degree.
