The Department of Human Geography hosts three master's programmes, partly run in cooperation with other departments. The courses are in English. Each programme, comprising two years of full-time studies, i.e. four semesters and 120 higher education credits (HECs), start in the Autumn Semester. In addition, the Department contribute to programmes coordinated by other Stockholm University departments.  

Regardless what of our three programmes you follow you do a 20 week thesis work. (Note: From the 2016/2017 academic year each master thesis course is open only for students accepted to a specific master’s programme.) This is compulsory. In the programmes, there are additional compulsory courses and, in addition, optional choices. All master’s programme students will get individual advice to find the best way to combine courses and develop the thesis work. Together we will formulate a study plan to guide you on your way through the programme.
