About this education
This course is the final compulsory component in the undergraduate programme in Geography, and comprises, amongst other elements, an optional area of specialization, 7,5 credits. In addition the course approaches the development of the discipline, Geography, and linkages with current areas of geographic research. A special project based on individual fieldwork and the elected area of specialisation constitutes 15 credits within the course. An extended field course in a non-European environment is included within the course, during which material for the special project is to be collected. The field course further comprises excursions and cooperation with universities in the respective countries. This field course may be replaced by a Swedish alternative. Geography III is the third component of the undergraduate programme in Geography, but may also be read as an individual course.
