The programme provides students with the required skills in geography and in other areas of the humanities and natural sciences, through a global and synthetic study approach. Graduates also have the ability to use the analytical and interpretive tools of Geography and Human Sciences for the interpretation, representation and communication of the construction and evolution of environments, territories, landscapes, cultures and societies. In particular, students will acquire specific skills in the analysis of the territory and landscape-environmental systems, in tourism dynamics, in landscape and environment protection and enhancement, and in development cooperation. These skills are achieved through the study of the main methodological, disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, and of specialized literature, as well as through knowledge of formation processes and methods of analysis, implementation and use of the various types of cartographic sources. In order to acquire these skills, they will attend lectures, seminars with scholars, experts, and key representatives of culture and institutions. They will also use educational multimedia (cartographic and photographic materials, documentaries, GIS data, etc.), attend workshops, including field workshops, and carry out exercises on specific topics.

Graduates may work in public and private institutions requiring professionals with the specific skills provided by the degree programme, as well as in the following areas: representation and analysis of the territory, identification and enhancement of resources and the related economic and political phenomena, promotion of cultural and natural tourism, intercultural management. There are also employment opportunities in specialized publishing.
For the above-mentioned purposes, the degree programme includes training activities providing operational skills, also with reference to cultural and environmental services.
