Rethinking Postgraduate Education in Geography: International Perspectives on Improving Practice
Monk, Janice; Foote, Kenneth; Solem, Michael
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v36 n1 p25-27 2012
This symposium brings together multi-national assessments of the current state of and challenges facing postgraduate education in geography. Contributors from Europe, Australia, South Africa and the USA identify ways in which restructuring of educational systems and wider political contexts affect programmes within the field. While highlighting the implications of initiatives such as restructuring of degrees in European universities, merging of Geography into interdisciplinary units in Australia, efforts to strengthen professional development programmes in the USA and to widen racial participation in South Africa, they also demonstrate the many challenges that remain to innovation, particularly as these are affected by economic conditions and policies.
