Study in geographical fields of study is divided into three-year bachelor and two-year continuing master studies. The overarching design of study programmes provides room for students to determine and pursue an individualized specialization. While in earlier years the selection of elective lectures, labs and seminars is small, by the end of a study programme, the majority of classroom hours are comprised of elective courses. Students are free to sign up for elective courses on the basis of their perception of future employment and consultation with the advisor for their bachelor’s or master’s thesis.

Geography – Cartography
general understanding of academic literature and must demonstrate an ability to utilize fundamental and primarily analytical methods employed in various geographical disciplines. During their fifth semester, students declare their intention to prepare a bachelor’s thesis in one of the departments, in accordance with the presumed orientation of their subsequent studies. The sixth semester, during which students focus on topics and classes dealing with their chosen geographical fields of study and associated specializations, acts as a transition to continuing master studies. During this semester, students finish, submit and defend their bachelor’s theses. Bachelor studies are completed with the bachelor exam. Defence of a bachelor’s thesis is a mandatory part of bachelor studies. The quality of the bachelor’s thesis is evaluated by the advisor and an opponent.

Bachelor studies focus on two fields of study. Demography is studied in combination with social geography (social geography at Charles University’s Faculty of Science), sociology (sociology at Charles University’s Faculty of Arts) or economics (economics at Charles University’s Faculty of Social Sciences). These two-field bachelor studies are completed with a final state exam that is made up of three parts: exams from both fields of study and defence of a bachelor’s thesis in one of the studied fields.
