Thesis Seminar

Thesis seminar forms the bridge between education and society and labour market. Students are stimulated to reflect about the social implications of their master thesis, about the role of geographers in society in general and their own future role in particular

Human Geography: Theory and Social Implications

Why do we think that some stories are 'geographically relevant' and others are not? Why do we think that some arguments are 'scientifically valid' and others are not? What is the sense (or nonsense) of doing research? What is the role of human geography and human geographers in society?

These questions make clear that analysis, debate and critical reflection form the core of this course. Students learn how to read academic articles carefully and critically, to prepare debates with academics and professionals, and to critically reflect on their research experiences and on their role as human geographers in soceity.
