Add to favourites

The Master's programme in Human Geography at the University of Amsterdam has a focus on urban and political geographies. The programme offers four specialisations: Economic Geography, Political Geography, Spatial Sustainability Studies and Urban Geography.

Geography is all about studying people, space and place - and Amsterdam is the perfect place to do that. First of all the city of Amsterdam itself is the perfect location and junction to study, explore, experience geography. Secondly, the University of Amsterdam, a major research university, offers a Master’s programme taught by one of the highest ranked geography departments in continental Europe. Last but not least, the Graduate School of Social Sciences (GSSS) of Amsterdam provides a vibrant and international academic community. The GSSS values diversity in both research and academic content, academic staff and student population.
