Bachelor Programme Differences

The bachelor programmes of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences are partly the same. Courses such as Urbanism and Planning, Economic Geography, Physical Geography, and Governance Dynamics are taught collectively.

So, what makes the programmes different?

Human Geography and Planning
Spatial Planning and Design

Within HGP there is more emphasis on social, demographic, cultural and economic developments in relation to space and place. The HGP bachelor is broader in scope than the SPD bachelor. A two week field trip to Northern America takes place in the third year.

Within SPD there is more focus on the design element than in HGP, in both spatial and institutional design. It specializes in a series of courses about water, infrastructure and environment. Throughout the programme students go on excursions to put theory into practice.
