  SOCIAL GEOGRAPHY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2020-21

Los actuales procesos y transformaciones de tipo social, demográfico, económico, político o cultural ofrecen una perspectiva que afecta a los espacios y a las sociedades a cualquier escala geográfica, desde la local a la global. La Geografía Social atiende a los problemas socio-territoriales, su localización y su comprensión, permitiendo valorar y contrastar los distintos sistemas de relaciones que se producen entre la población y los territorios del mundo en los que ésta habita.

Los contenidos y competencias de la asignatura Geografía Social en el Grado de Trabajo Social se incluyen en el módulo de procesos y problemas sobre los que actúa el trabajo social, y en concreto, en las materias vinculadas con la estructura, la desigualdad y la exclusión social.

El conocimiento de las técnicas básicas de análisis y el estudio de fenómenos como: la distribución geográfica de la población, los movimientos de población, la fecundidad, el envejecimiento, los contrastes campo-ciudad, la discapacidad, la segregación espacial, las diferencias de género o la geopolítica constituyen la base teórica y práctica de la asignatura; y contribuyen a definir la identidad y el perfil profesional de la trabajadora social / del trabajador social.
