Knowing and understanding the territory.

That is the aim of geography and that is our contribution, among other things, from the Department of Geography at the Autonomous University of Barcelona: how the territory is and how it works (which includes people who live there and the environment that shapes it) at every different level of study, from the largest to the smallest, from local to continental scale or even on a planetary scale.

Our training programs take shape trough teaching participation in various degrees (Geography and Regional Planning degree, Environmental Science degree and other ones), an 4 Official Master’s degree in Regional and Population Studies, GIS, Remote Sensing and Landscape and PPCEL and two doctorates (Demography and Geography).

And all this is fed by the commitment of more than a hundred people who alternate teaching with research and management, forming a dozen research groups and being always at your disposal.
