Human Geography at Radboud University

Human Geography is a research field which focuses on studying the spatial behaviour of people, firms and organisations. Or, to put it simply, it is a study that observes the relationship between human activities and their spatial environment. Because it is an integrative discipline, Human Geography serves as an excellent platform for integrating knowledge from various related disciplines, such as Sociology, Athropology, Psychology, International Relations, Economics, Business Administration and Development Studies.
 

The Master's programme in Human Geography takes pride in its small group sizes, meaning you will have plenty of opportunity to work with supervisors and other students. At Radboud, you will also have access to world-class research facilities.
