Course description

The MSc International Area Studies - Global Change Geography tackles today's pressing international issues. These include the opportunities and risks of globalisation, the dynamics of the world economy, the emergence and impact of international conflicts, land use changes and their ecological effects, resource scarcity, and the consequences of climate change. With this program, you can delve into these topics through an interdisciplinary approach, examining both conceptual frameworks and real-world regional contexts. We offer a variety of courses, allowing you to tailor your focus and supplementary fields to your interests. The program's strong interdisciplinary orientation equips you with skills in networked thinking and analysis, both interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary. It builds on the knowledge from geographically oriented bachelor’s programs, addressing international problems, explanatory approaches, and solutions within specific regional contexts in light of global change. You can configure the study program to emphasize either research or practical application, ensuring it aligns with your career goals.
