Leerdoelen Apply a rich and diverse set of theoretical and thematic knowledge. The theoretical and thematic orientation is the portfolio of courses focused on theory and contents that students are required to fulfill during their research master in spatial sciences.
Omschrijving The course units in GERMTTO (in year 1 and in year 2) form the theoretical and thematic orientation in the research master spatial sciences. Students should acquire a rich and diverse set of knowledge and competences regarding spatial sciences and regional studies. The standard amount of theoretical and thematic courses is 30 EC. If a 15EC Research Internship (instead of the standard 10EC) is chosen then 25EC of theoretical and thematic courses is required.
The theoretical and thematic orientation is the individual collection of course units focused on theory and contents that students are required to fulfil during their Research Master Programme.
The theoretical and thematic course units provided by the faculty are presented in the Teaching and Examination Regulations (OER). The course units reflect recent developments and discussions in the specific academic disciplines within the spatial sciences. Besides courses at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences students are allowed to follow courses on other faculties or universities. Students have a.o. followed modules at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Philosophy, and at Utrecht University, Wageningen University and the University of Amsterdam in the past.

For students following one of the Research Master specialisations (Cultural Geography, Economic Geography etc) many courses are predetermined, but limited choice options are still available. Please check the ReMa specialisation document (https://www.rug.nl/frw/education/master-info-frw/rema-specialisations.pdf), and contact the coordinators (of the specializatioin master and the ReMa) in case advice or approval is needed.
