Urban spaces, landscapes and regions
Human Geography is about the ways in which spaces, places and environments are both the condition for and the consequence of human activities.Within human geography you study human interactions with their surrounding world. The subject has a focus on how people organize and make use of the earth's surface and its resources.
Particular emphasis is on people's economic, social and cultural activities and processes as well as on the relationship to places and geographical areas: from urban spaces to landscapes, regions and countries. Human geography covers many topics and can be combined with other university disciplines.
As human geographers, we take a broad view of human activities as cultural, economic, social and political, and we approach topics from distinctly geographical perspectives. Human geographers add sensitivity to space and place to social, political and economic enquiry, and we frequently draw on elements from the natural sciences and the humanities.
Human Geography gives you a basis for several possible careers like urban planner, educator, scientist, analyst, environmental strategist, or manager in the private and public sectors.
