The main objective of the Bachelor’s Degree in Geography and Land Management of the University of Granada is to provide students with integrated theoretical and practical training that will allow them to perform territorial diagnostics based on the skilled interpretation of spatial processes from a physical-environmental as well as a socio-economic perspective. They will learn how to deal with territorial diversity and complexity, based on the knowledge of relevant elements, factors, and interrelations. With a view to identifying, analysing, and interpreting the nature and functionality of the territory, this degree programme provides students with a practical knowledge of work techniques for the collection, analysis, treatment, and representation of geographic information. This includes primary sources, with a special emphasis on field work as well as secondary sources, accompanied by the effective use of ICT. From a holistic perspective and at various levels, graduates of this degree programme will be able to identify the characteristics, potentialities, opportunities, impacts, and risks that affect the territorial system in order to facilitate its planning and management. They will also be qualified to work in research and teaching.
In consonance with the objectives of the degree programme, graduates will develop a set of skills that facilitate the attainment of objectives within the context of training that favours high-quality professional performance, as stated in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (MECES). In line with the general competences shared with other professional profiles, this degree programme qualifies graduates to do the following:
1. Be aware of the importance of the socio-economic and physical-environmental processes of territories.
2. Know about and be able to reflect on environmental problems in today’s world and on economic, urban, political, demographic, and cultural problems reflected in the territory and landscape.
3. Know, organise, synthesise, and map geographic information by using tools such as GIS to formulate proposals of scientific-technical intervention for territorial planning and management, based on complex diagnostics.
4. Know how to teach and disseminate geographic information.
