In the degree in Geography of the The Faculty of Arts of the University of Lleida we study the relationship of people with their environment, be it the city, the territory or the physical environment. To carry out this type of study we use and make maps, we look at the social and economic dynamics to the extent that they have an influence on the use and modeling of the space and we do not lose the historical perspective, since it helps us to understand many phenomena that interest us.
We deal, therefore, with problems as diverse as urban planning, demography, natural resources and sustainability, social conflicts and their spatial repercussions, tourism or the location of companies or means of transport, among others.
To achieve these objectives it is necessary to master some techniques, such as cartography, statistics or the use of databases and software such as geographic information systems.
However, we do not forget the theoretical training that enables us to understand social and territorial dynamics. An apprenticeship like the one we propose prepares our students to face the world of work in various fields, both public and private. Among the many exits we highlight those of a territory development agent, a Geographical Information Systems technician, an environmental technician, a meteorologist or a Geography and History teacher. The training that is acquired in this field will depend on the imagination and the will that each one puts.
