2nd cycle Geography

Content

Due to the great heterogeneity of applied geography and the integration of geography with other related spatial sciences, the program enables a wide range of choices with specializations in the following areas: environmental protection; applied physical geography; regional and spatial planning; rural studies; urban studies; political geography; geography of tourism and leisure; and applied geoinformatics. The program also includes many external electives and practical training, and culminates in a defense of a master’s thesis. The aim of the program is to train students for independent research work, for participation in research projects and participation in interdisciplinary research groups.

The second-level program of study in geography is thus composed of seven focuses: six single-subject ones and one double-subject teacher training course:

  • Environmental and physical geography – Geography of tourism and leisure
  • Environmental and physical geography – Political geography
  • Environmental and physical geography – Applied geoinformatics
  • Regional planning and urban-rural studies – Geography of tourism and leisure
  • Regional planning and urban-rural studies – Political geography
  • Regional planning and urban-rural studies – Applied geoinformatics

Double-subject teacher training course:

The double-subject teacher training course qualifies students for the profession of geography teacher in primary and secondary schools. Graduates acquire knowledge and skills from two subjects (geography and another selected subject) as well as a foundation in education sciences (joint education module). Double subjects enable intra- and interdisciplinary transfer in the application of knowledge, methodology, understanding of scientific and teaching methods, approaches and processes.

The program of study at the second level lasts two years (four semesters) and comprises a total of 60 (double-subject teacher training course) or 120 (single subject) credits.

P = Lectures; S = Seminars; V = Tutorials; D = Other forms of organized study work (practical training, observations, performances, field work, etc.); KT = ECTS credit (Credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System). 1 ECTS credit means 25 to 30 hours of student workload. Zimski = Winter; Letni = Summer; Celoletni = Full-year.
