Department of Geography

The Department of Geography at the University of Trondheim was established in 1975. In 1996, the former colleges of the University of Trondheim were merged into one single unit, which was named the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The Department is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Technology Management.

Our research covers a broad range of fields across human and physical geography, with further links to other disciplines. We explore the interface between nature and society, and engage in debates on central problems and concepts of the discipline, such as space and place, scale (e.g. the local and the global), and the fundamental issue of structure and agency in the social sciences.

Our research provides relevant and novel insight to the complex challenges our society is facing by an interdisciplinary orientation and a tradition for focused collaboration among the staff. The research is clustered into four interconnected groups:
