Program Description

MSc in Geography

Charles University Faculty of Science

Master's degree program is based on modern knowledge of a number of scientific disciplines dealing with the landscape, its forces, dynamics, and interactions. That represents the intersection of disciplines enabling to deepen the foundations of scientific (physical geography and geo-ecology, geology, biology), technical (cartography, geo-informatics, remote sensing) and social disciplines (social geography, sociology, history, and law). The aim is to obtain theoretical and practical skills to capture the landscape and its folders, work with them using GIS, remote sensing, aerial imagery, modeling. Lectures are carried out in the Czech language with the use of Czech and foreign (mostly English language) literature, one lecture (Heritage of Cultural Landscapes) will be carried out in English. To enrich learning activities, foreign guests working at our workplaces on regular basis will be involved. Teaching in some subjects will be designed in a way that final evaluation of the student consists of a scientific performance on the international stage, including the presentation in English. The best graduates of the follow-up master's program will be able to continue in doctoral programs.“General Questions of Geography” previously accredited is a follow-up to a large extent. Graduates should find their place as in basic as in applied research, in decisive and project spheres.
