Degree in Geography

240 credits - Faculty of Philosophy and Arts

The general aim of the Degree in Geography is to train professionals in the necessary scientific knowledge to understand, interpret, analyse and diagnose the territory surrounding us, both in environmental and social aspects.

Graduates will be able to work in areas linked to natural resources, population, urban development, town and country planning, the environment, landscaping, transport and tourism.

They will be able to access different fields as professionals such as: town and country planning; cartography and geographic information systems; analysis of the physical and social environment; teaching; research, and postgraduate studies in social and natural sciences.

Class time and field work are combined during the programme: field research is one of the main pillars of teaching in the programme. As with other UIB degrees, the ability to understand, speak and write in English is developed.
