About the Department

The Department of Social Geography and Regional Development is one of four geography departments in the Faculty of Science at Charles University. It is the top human geography department in Czechia and Central Europe as a whole. Its members are the principal investigators of research grants funded by the Czech Science Foundation and the Charles University Science Foundation, and they are involved in international research grants. Members of the Department also regularly publish abroad, serve on the editorial boards of international academic journals, and participate in major international scientific associations.

The QS World University Ranking by Subject ranked the School of Geography at Charles University’s Faculty of Science among the top one hundred geography schools/departments in the world. 

PhD students are welcome to participate in most of the activities of the Department and the Department supports those who are active—not only financially. We try to do our best to provide students with a friendly, inspiring, and motivating environment for conducting their research.
