SP Geography (Mgr.)

Full-time study

The study develops students’ ability to seek and evaluate geographic information sources of various types, classify, analyse and interpret the acquired information, use modern instruments in geoinformatics to analyse, communicate and critically discuss the outcomes of their work with both the national and international audience. Students in master’s program gain knowledge of the spatial organisation of geographic phenomena and processes on the Earth (evaluation of geographic position, its meaning and relationships within the natural and societal systems), interaction of natural and social phenomena (locational interactions, structural complexity and developmental perspectives), and functioning of regional systems and processes, while critically applying the concepts of sustainability, governance, risk and uncertainty. Furthermore, students gain skills necessary for applying geoinformatics tools in public administration (real estate records, territorial landscape protection, land-use planning), creation of GIS projects addressing specific practical issues, application of knowledge of regional science and politics in practice, and social communication (interactive, organisational and others).
