Spatial Sciences

Are you interested in a career as a researcher of spatial subjects? This programme allows the study of Spatial Sciences in the broadest possible way and it trains students to become good researchers.

The two-year Research Master in Spatial Sciences has two key features. First, it allows students maximum scientific freedom to learn and discover. Second, it lets students develop serious scientific research skills. Throughout the programme we take inspiration from Einstein's words: 'I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious'. Research Master students don't have to be extraordinarily talented or gifted. But students need to have a passionate curiosity about people and places. With this driving curiosity the research master Spatial Sciences is a good choice.

Maximum scientific freedom to learn and discover

Students can design their own programme by choosing courses according to their own interests. They can choose courses from all Spatial Sciences master programmes: environmental and infrastructure planning, economic geography, cultural geography, population studies, socio-spatial planning or real estate studies and they may also include courses from other faculties.

Serious development of research skills

Students become a good researcher by experiencing a series of carefully designed research settings. They will participate in a joint multidisciplinary research challenge with other ReMa students. They will receive one-to-one individual research training from an URSI staff member involved in the tWIST research programme of our faculty. They will do a research internship at an outstanding research institute. The research experiences will be both big and small: they will range from the final master thesis taking several months to small half an hour researches as part of the scientific diary. Students will be trained in a wide array of research methods.

Human geography, people and their multifaceted relations to places and spaces, is an important and rich field of study. This blog is written by students of the Research Master in Spatial Sciences of the University of Groningen. They share interesting facts, books, theories and discoveries they encounter while studying. www.rug.nl/frw/human-geography-remastered/

For a top education in geography and planning you choose Groningen!
