Geography - Specialization on Tourism Geography

Geography - Specialization on Tourism Geographies

Geography is one of the widest fields in sciences. The discipline studies different spatial and regional processes on the surface of the Earth, mainly in the context of human activities. One of the focal areas of geography is the examination of the relationship between people and the environment. This relation and its changing meanings are still important starting-points in geography.

At the University of Oulu, geography is divided into five fields of specialization: physical geography, human geography, tourism geography, geoinformatics as well as regional development and regional policy. Geography has a special role as a mediator between social and natural sciences. Due to the wide-ranging character of the research subjects, geographers currently apply the theories and methods of natural sciences, cultural and social sciences widely. Similarly, the aim of education in geography is to provide students with wide and profound theoretic-methodological knowledge and to offer the capability to master the contents of the field. After the graduation, students are able to apply this knowledge in e.g. scientific research, regional planning or as experts and subject teachers.

After MSc-graduation the student can

  • define his/her the most essential research traditions in tourism geographies
  • define the most important research challenges in the view point of present and future situation
  • analyze different geographical causalities and information using in-depth research methods
  • apply learned aspects to new teaching and learning situations and clarify how different phenomena of Geography are fixed together

"Oulu ei ehkä ole New York, mutta täältä voi tulla kovempaa porukkaa. Näillä leveysasteilla tarvitaan tietynlaista asennetta. Meillä sekä tieteen tekeminen että opiskelijaelämä hoidetaan tinkimättömällä pohjoisen tyylillä. Ja sitä joko rakastaa tai sitten oppii rakastamaan. Asenne voi olla yhtä tärkeää...
