General information

The Master's programme in Human Geography at Radboud University addresses the relationship between human activities and their spatial environment in a number of topical fields. It takes a critical, emancipatory approach to the field by engaging with the less privileged in society, but also trying to contribute to positive change and development in many different fields. The programme focuses on the newest theories and conceptual approaches, while never losing sight of the societal relevance of the topics being studied.

The Master's programme in Human Geography has seven specialisations: Conflicts, Territories and Identities; Cultural Geography and Tourism; Economic Geography; Europe: Borders, Identity and Governance; Globalisation, Migration and Development and Urban and Cultural Geography. In addition the Master Programme also offers the option of constructing your own flexible Master's specialisation, in which the student chooses their own combination of courses (if approved by the examination board). Finally we offer two possibilities to become fully an accredited geography high school teacher in the Netherlands and to become highly competent in knowledge communication in general: (1) a two-year educational master in Geography (website in Dutch) in which you combine one of the regular master specialisations mentioned above with geographical didactical knowledge and skills,  (2) a one-year advanced post-Master's programme offered by the Radboud Teachers Academy (website in Dutch).

The Master's programme in Human Geography at Radboud University can be done in two different modes: as a one-year full-time Master's programme or as a one-and-a-half-year dual mode programme in (paid work in a relevant professional field combined with university course work).

Studying abroad 
The Nijmegen School of Management believes it is important for students to spend time at a university abroad. Please note, in the Master’s this could mean you have to take longer to finish the programme. This enriches the study programme with knowledge and skills that are necessary to function in an internationally-oriented and multicultural society, a global economy and job market. The Nijmegen School of Management has over 180 Erasmus contracts, and more than 50 bilateral agreements with universities outside of Europe.
