Study of geography and cartography is realised either as single subject aimed predominantly at future professionals and scientists education or as multi subject enabling a combination of two or more subjects.

Study aimed at teacher qualification of at least two subjects (Geography and cartography aimed at education + the second subject) is a traditional type of multi subject study. Graduates of M. A. programmes gain a full teacher qualification.

Since academic year 2003/2004 study at the Institute of Geography has been organised in three stages: bachelor, master and doctoral.
