More information 


During this 4-semesters Master degree program, our students will focus on GIS
methods and remote sensing tool applied in surface geomorphology both in a
classroom environment and in the fields. They will have the opportunity to join
in and participate in research and scientific projects run by IGES. We have
research collaborations with global companies like ESA and SARMap, and
international relations with research groups from Switzerland, Poland, Spain,
Slovenia, China and US. These projects may provide internships for our students
to experience the international atmosphere and scientific skills and knowledge.
We also have a transnational environment here at UP with students from across
the globe.
The master program provides a broad spectrum of geography and related
disciplines for all international students and combines environmental geography,
geomorphology and GIS. The program includes a six-week long professional
practice at self-selected private and public businesses and companies, however,
the practice is also available at the university and at the IGES. By completing
the professional practice, you will gain a broad range of practical and project
management skills and knowledge to explain, analyse, interpret and execute
various planning programs.

The minimum amount of credits to be collected in every semester is 18.

Career opportunities

Future Job Opportunities:

A degree in geography from the University of Pécs opens many new doors in terms of your career choices. Due to the Geomorphology/GIS specialization, students may find jobs where the application of either geomorphology, GIS, or any related fields are indispensable. Therefore, students may find their future career as a geomorphologist, geospatial analyst, GIS specialist, climate change analyst, climatologist, emergency management specialist, hydrologist, location analyst, meteorologist, pollution analyst, remote sensing analyst, soil conservationist, surveyor, town planner, and water conservation officer, among many other jobs out at the job market.
