Geography and Cartography with a view to Education

General information

The study programme forms a part of double-subject studies, and constitutes the first level of the university studies leading to a teaching qualification for secondary schools. It provides general geographical education which is supplemented with the cartographic education.

The expected objective is to prepare graduates for studies in the Master's study programme of Upper Secondary School Teacher Training in Geography and Cartography, but since the graduates obtain comprehensive geographical and cartographic education and the basics of pedagogy, methodology and psychology, they can find direct application in practice outside the area of education.

A successful graduate is able to

  • understand and explain the physical geographical and social geographical phenomena and processes
  • master the fundamentals of geographical cartography and geoinformatics
  • use the methods and techniques of processing geographical data, including GIS and cartographic data presentation methods
  • apply basic ideas and concepts of general didactics, pedagogy, and psychology
  • study applied parts of these disciplines in the Master’s degree programme

Graduate employment

The graduates are prepared primarily to progress to the Master's degree programme. Although not fully qualified as teachers, their education is clearly useful for activities aiming at the general public, and may be applied at secondary and primary schools through conducting specialized seminars for gifted students, and preparation of these students for the Olympiads, competitions, and entrance examinations to colleges.
