What will you learn?

The objective of the study programme is to provide scholars, researchers, stakeholders, curriculum developers and motivated educators with high quality scientific training. Research can be conducted in the following areas:

  • content and aims of geography curriculum, exploration of its intended, realized and achieved forms;
  • principles, trends, actors, factors, processes and outcomes of geography education in broader socio-cultural contexts;
  • education and professionalization of geography educators at all levels and types of schools and other educational institutions.

Practical training

As part of their studies, PhD students participate in the practical training of students of bachelor and master study programmes (seminars, bachelor and master theses supervision) and other professional activities. It is not an exception that students of doctoral studies work as geography teachers or educators directly in practice at different levels and types of schools and out-of-school facilities. An indispensable part of dissertation theses is also the determination of implications or recommendations for practice resulting from the results of dissertation research.
