The interuniversity master’s programme in Geography offers a comprehensive training in spatial approaches to social and/or natural phenomena. As such, it offers a wholly different, fundamentally multidisciplinary and very exciting point of view to a whole lot of events and processes.

The Master of Geography programme is a two-year advanced study organised by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the KU Leuven. This interuniversity master’s programme provides the students with comprehensive training in spatial approaches to social and/or natural phenomena.

The programme provides a deeper understanding of geographical problems and methods, knowledge to augment the theoretical debate within the discipline, and training in the use of geographical research techniques.

The global aim of the master’s programme is to generate geographers that can play an active role in contemporary society.

The programme has been recently redefined. From 2014-2015 the following specializations will be offered:

  • Earth and Climate
  • City, Society and Space
  • GIS and Spatial Modelling
