Economic Geography is the study of how economic activities are distributed over physical spaces and influenced by geographical factors. This field delves into the location, distribution, and spatial organization of economic activities across the world. Students explore topics like globalization, regional development, and the spatial aspects of industries and resources. The curriculum integrates principles of economics with geographic analysis, teaching students about the dynamics of trade, the impact of location on economic activities, and urban and rural economic structures. Graduates often pursue careers in regional planning, economic development, real estate, or policy advising, playing key roles in shaping economic landscapes and strategies.
