The aim of the Geography MSc program is to train professional geographers who have deep insight into landscape and urban development. Graduates of the programme are able to understand the natural, environmental, technical and social phenomena and processes, to develop research and applied science-based solutions, to demonstrate the results of their research and to plan and manage the sustainability of the natural and human environment. Successful graduates can also continue their studies and research in the Geosciences PhD program at University of Szeged.

Based on the current needs of the labour market, employers expect a comprehensive theoretical background to fulfill the requirements of various positions in relevant fields, a thorough IT knowledge, an analytical approach, and the ability to participate in development planning processes, to compile professional studies and documents and to work independently. The skills and competencies covered during this four semester programme have been developed according to these needs.

The basic courses cover the fields of geographical research methods, project management, regional policy and spatial development, political and social geography, landscape planning, and environmental risk assessment. The core fields of studies are spatial data collection and analysis, visualisation, environmental planning models, urban planning, rural development, place marketing, vegetation analysis, and hydrological planning. Beginning in the third semester, students start a research project which forms the basis of a qualifying thesis. All MSc candidates must also pass a final examination.
