Cultural Geography

Would you like to understand how the characteristics of places relate to the quality of life and wellbeing of people and communities?

The Master teaches students how to make a useful contribution to improving place-related liveability, quality of life and wellbeing in society. Students become professionally competent in the field of geography and liveability so that they can make a useful contribution to improving place-related liveability, quality of life and wellbeing in society. The master deals with the qualities of a place (neighbourhood, village, city, region) that add to the quality of life as experienced by inhabitants and visitors. Aspects that influence the liveability of places and communities are safety, health, quality of the residential environment (housing, facilities and services), social interaction and participation, community involvement, options for recreation and tourism, quality and unicity of the landscape.  

Starting from September 2017 all compulsory courses of this master are taught in Leeuwarden (Campus Fryslân). You can also follow the track within Cultural Geography: Tourism Geography and Planning, starting from September 2017:  http://www.rug.nl/masters/tourism-geography-and-planning/ .
