Leerdoelen Apply advanced and specialized research methods and techniques relevant for research in the spatial sciences.
Omschrijving This course consists of modules worth a total of 15 ECTS focus on advanced and specialized research methods and techniques, which are relevant for research in human geography, demography, and spatial planning. Students can choose 15 EC from a list of courses that range from fieldwork to advanced statistical analysis. It is complemented with the obligatory final 5EC course 'Advanced Research Skills' to make up 20 EC of methodological training.

The 15 EC eligible methodological modules provided within the Faculty of Spatial Sciences are presented in a list (see the program at: and see the heading: ‘Optional methodological courses (GERMMETH) year 1 and 2 Spatial Sciences’) The general rule for choosing the 15 EC of courses is that the student assures that he or she receives a broad methodological training, involving a wide range of methods. Students need to check with the ReMa coordinator for approval of the overall list. Students may also follow modules outside the Facultyl also after approval by the coordinator. In earlier years, students have for instance followed modules on multi-level analysis and intervention research at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences; on Spatial Econometrics in the Faculty of Economics and Management; and Designing Longitudinal Surveys at the Leibniz Institute in Köln (Germany).

For students following one of the Research Master specialisations (Cultural Geography, Economic Geography etc) most of the courses are predetermined, but limited choice options are still available. Please check the ReMa specialisation document ( , and contact the coordinators (of the specializatioin master and the ReMa) in case advice or approval is needed.
