Geografi, masterprogram


It is increasingly evident that we are moving towards an urban world; most of the planets population now live and carry out their livelihoods in urban areas and business and production are increasingly concentrated to urban regions. But how do such structural transformations articulate with and influence people’s lives and environments, short and long range resource chains, as well as land and resource use?

The task of achieving sustainable urban futures requires that holistic thinking is placed on the agenda. The discipline of geography, which bridges the social and natural sciences, is particularly suited to such a challenge.

Career areas

This master's programme equips you with the tools and knowledge required for working skilled and independently with complex geographical problems and challenges and to be able to carry out advanced plans and evaluations pertaining to urban areas, urban-rural dynamics as well as relations between cities and regions. There are good career opportunities in the public sector as well as in consulting. The advanced knowledge of GIS technology and its application gives you further attractive skills.


The overriding goal of the Master Program in Geography is to train students in the aforementioned thematic problem areas in such a way that acquired knowledge, skills and analytical expertise provide good opportunities for careers in related fields of employment and for doctoral studies in geography. The application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is an important part of the programme. Depending on the profile of the individual student, the Master Program aims to provide specialist competency and knowledge in sustainable development relating to urban issues in a wider geographical context with possible focus on

  • urban sustainability
  • sustainable mobility
  • qualitative and quantitative methods
