Geography is designed as an academic field of study according to Czech legislation. Graduates are prepared to pursue their professional careers as well as to continue in the master’s degree studies. The programme provides a comprehensive view of all basic geographic disciplines, with emphasis on links between the natural and socio-economic (human or social) subsystems of the landscape. The study programme in Geography includes general geographical disciplines (physical geography and geoecology, economic geography, social geography and regional development, sustainable development, environmental protection), regional geography and geoinformatics. Together with the knowledge, the student learns analytical methods of the individual geographical sciences and acquires the skills to evaluate, interpret, and communicate geographic data.
Geography for Education
The study programme includes general geographical education (physical geography, social geography, regional geography) and experience in work with geographic information systems. The specialized subjects focus on the issue of regional development, landscape evaluation, and the environment. Within this programme, geography is combined with other disciplines (maior or minor) – mostly within the Faculty of Science (Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics), the Faculty of Arts (History, Politology, German language and literature) and the Faculty of education (Physical education). The study is suitable for applicants who want to continue in the masters programme of teachers training in geography for the second stage of elementary school and at secondary schools. However, the graduate profile also makes it possible to continue in geography studies not related to teaching, or to directly develop a professional career.
