Bachelor’s Programme 'Geography of Global Changes and Geoinformation Technology'
Geography of Global Changes and Geoinformation Technology
This programme is designed to give students extensive knowledge about global environmental changes and corresponding social and economic processes, as well as provide in-depth skills in spatial analysis and geographic information system (GIS).
The programme offers specialist training in major geographic research methods and tools for spatial decision-making in both corporate and public administration.
Among the programme’s teachers are leading researchers in human geography, environmental and earth sciences, as well business experts in the field of geoinformatics, natural resources management, environmental engineering, regional consulting and others.
Russian government and HSE scholarships and tuition fee waivers available
Programme graduates will become familiar with the major issues of global environmental change (e.g. climate change, biodiversity loss), get understanding of Russian and global spatial social and economic processes (e.g. migration, depopulation) and obtain practical skills in spatial data processing, scientific research, environmental management, and decision-making. Such background opens multiple career paths in environmental management, corporate and public administration, spatial data analysis and visualization, scientific research and other areas.
After the second year students may choose one of the three specializations offered within the course: Global environmental and climate change, Geoinformation technology and spatial modeling and Human geography and spatial decisions.
