THE COURSE PROVIDES THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK AND FUNDAMENTAL METHODS FOR THE UNDERSTANDING OF HOW DIFFERENT HUMAN SOCIETIES MODIFY AND STRUCTURE THE EARTH'S SURFACE IN ORDER TO ENSURE THE FULFILLMENT OF THEIR NEEDS AND THE SOCIAL REPRODUCTION. PARTICULAR ATTENTION WILL BE PAID TO THE GEO-ECONOMIC AND GEO-POLITICAL INTERDEPENDENCIES ESTABLISHED AMONG COUNTRIES AND REGIONS OF THE WORLD, RESULTING IN IMPORTANT INTEGRATION PROCESSES, AS WELL AS TERRITORIAL ASYMMETRIES AND GLOBAL CHALLENGES.
AT THE END OF THE COURSE THE STUDENT WILL HAVE ACQUIRED THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE AND METHODOLOGICAL TOOLS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE TERRITORIAL DIMENSION OF ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL PROCESSES AND THEIR DYNAMICS IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD. THE STUDENT WILL ALSO HAVE TO DEVELOP AUTONOMY OF JUDGMENT AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO BE ABLE TO INTEGRATE THE ACQUIRED GEOGRAPHIC COMPETENCES WITH THE SKILLS GAINED IN OTHER DISCIPLINES IN HER CURRICULUM.
