Joint Programme Board for Geography

The Programme Board is one of the main elements of the study quality assurance system at Masaryk University; it is an advisory body to the degree programme guarantor, its chair. The Programme Board is composed of degree programme guarantors, academic employees, students and graduates of a given degree programme.

The student representative has a full-fledged position in the Program Board, so he/she can, like other members, for example:


  • evaluate the degree programme development plan on an annual basis
  • as a representative of the students of the given study programme, he/she is in contact with the Students´ Chamber of the Academic Senate of the faculty, monitors the events in the study program and ascertains the requirements and needs of other students of the program
  • communicate with other students of the programme using group e-mail correspondence in IS MU
Academic Senate of the Faculty of Science (MU)

The Academic Senate of the Faculty of Science is a self-governing representative body of this Faculty's academic community. It consists of two chambers, a chamber of academic staff and a chamber of students. Among other things, Academic Senate elects the Dean, approves the budget, internal regulations and other selected legislative standards of the Faculty.

The Department of Geography is also represented in both chambers. Do not hesitate to contact any member of the Senate with any suggestions.
