The Master's programme in Human Geography at the University of Amsterdam has a focus on urban and political geographies. The programme offers four specialisation tracks: Economic Geography, Political Geography, Spatial Sustainability Studies and Urban Geography.
The Master 's track Economic Geography focuses on how the globalised economy has affected the lives of people in different parts of the world.
The Master's in Political Geography focuses on geopolitics, globalisation and governance. By examining these concepts, political geographies in our current globalised world are analysed and researched.
Spatial Sustainability Studies takes a spatial perspective to understand the interlinkages between environmental and social challenges, identify the main drivers and develop interventions to address them.
The Master's programme in Urban Geography provides students with a deeper understanding of global and local processes that shape cities across the world.
