Lecture at secondary schools about geography studies

The Bachelor's degree in Geography, Town and Country Planning and Environmental Management has been taught at the UdG since the 2009-2010 academic year.

It is a unique bachelor's degree in Spain, in the sense that it specialises in the ordering of the territory and environmental management and is has an applied focus, which means that from the second year students do work placements, and they also do a final degree project. The external placements in companies or institutions are also obligatory.

You can see the content of the curriculum in this link .

We offer you the possibility of our coming to your secondary school to explain about the new bachelor's degree studies and which subjects we, the teachers and researchers of the Department of Geography of the UdG, develop.

This activity, which is directed at Upper Secondary Education students and third and fourth year Compulsory Secondary Education students, will take place in the classrooms of your centre at the time that best suits you during the months of December, January, February, March and April.You must request this activity before 30 November of each academic year.
