Human Geography examines the differences between places in the world and how peoples’ living conditions can be explained by local, national, and global processes. It analyses geographical patterns, structures, and processes.
Central research areas are changes in economic life, industrial growth and pollution, urban expansion, political, social and demographic processes, poverty, and inequality. Human geography compares social changes in rich and poor countries, in both large and small places.
Through the programme you will gain a knowledge of the causes and consequences of geographical variation and processes of change for people, society and the environment. In addition you achieve a solid and wide academic basis for further studies in the subject.
