The Master Economic Geography focuses on how the globalised economy has affected the lives of people in different parts of the world. Processes of globalisation are deeply intertwined with changes in communication and transport technologies as well as with policies of de- and re-regulation. We will not only explore economic aspects of increasingly globalised production networks, but also their social impact.

The Master’s programme in Human Geography provides students with a strong background in contemporary theories and theoretical and methodological debates in human geography, and more specifically in the geographical sub-disciplines.
Programme director Hebe Verrest and Prof. Ewald Engelen explain what the Master's track Economic Geography is about in this video.
The teaching in this track is organised in small groups. This results in small scale research communities in which academic staff and students work closely together in a less formal and more open environment.
The combination of taught skills, together with the specialisation track and the focus in the thesis will prepare students for their future career as a geographer in a wide array of institutional contexts: either public service, profit sector or civil society, either local, national, international or transnational organisations.
