PhD in General Issues in Geography

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Part time 4 years September 2017 Czech Republic Prague

General Issues in Geography as a programme of doctoral studies constitute an effort to find the touching/intersected topics that link the previous programmes of doctoral studies. In fact, a rapid development of geographic fields in the past half a century brought about their exceptional differentiation, while the common denominator of the individual fields was weakened. The strengthening of mutual links between individual fields of geography constitutes a major task both for further development of geography as a science and the fulfilling of the urgent needs of society.

General Issues in Geography as a programme of doctoral studies constitute an effort to find the touching/intersected topics that link the previous programmes of doctoral studies. In fact, a rapid development of geographic fields in the past half a century brought about their exceptional differentiation, while the common denominator of the individual fields was weakened. The strengthening of mutual links between individual fields of geography constitutes a major task both for further development of geography as a science and the fulfilling of the urgent needs of society. This is associated with the fact that the current landscape, as a focus of geographical study, is undergoing major changes both on the local and regional levels, as well as the state, continental and global levels. However, its research is primarily materialised within specialised disciplines. As a result, an interconnection of differing aspects of crucial questions of the research into the interaction of nature and society and the enhancement of holistic approaches to the solution of problems is becoming urgently needed. The crucial problems should be not only studied, but also represented in the educational process as its integrating parts. It is just geography on elementary and secondary schools (as well as a number of non-geographic programmes of universities) that should play the corresponding integrating role of an umbrella field. The misunderstanding of this integrating potential of geography by the drafters of the curricular reform of the Czech education and the traditional division of sciences/subjects/disciplines into social and natural science spheres can also...
