Welcome to; SGEM21 Human Geography; Geographies of Economies - Transforming Places, People and Production, 7.5 credits
The course is taught in the first term of the Master's Programme in Human Geography (120 credits) and is also offered as a freestanding course.
This advanced level course in Economic Geography focuses on some of the most important socio-economic challenges that today’s cities, regions and nations face. It examines how globalization affects firms and people in particular places, and why some regions continue to grow and prosper when other regions struggle with economic restructuring.
These themes are analyzed from different theoretical perspectives to examine the underlying forces that shape the trajectories and transformations of economic spaces.
