The asignatura Economic Geography is devoted to the study and analysis of the economic spaces, of the internal and dynamic relations of the factors that compose them and of the interrelationships that establish between all the elements that compose and configure the territory, especially in the measure in that it pleads for the utilisation of an approach sistémico, holístico and critic. This asignatura offers to the alumnado a basic geographic training from a human and social perspective, at the same time that facilitates the acquisition of fundamental knowledges to complement the contents that can relate with the labour demand in appearances linked with the ordination of the territory.

1.) Identification of the economic activities and his guidelines of location the territory.
2.) Knowledge and analysis of the criteria of competitiveness that offers the territory.
3.) Identification of the factors that improve or limit the local and regional development.
4.) Analysis of the economic and territorial effects of the globalisation.
1.) It is important that the alumnado comprise that the territory can not fragmentar in departments-tight because it would suppose his desnaturalización. The space has to consider like an all complex, interrelated and interdependent, where knits a plot of complementary relations, conflictive, mutually dependent and in continuous movement, satisfied, in definite, with the laws of the dialectics.
2.) The alumnado has to assimilate that the study of the economic spaces has to tackle from an approach sistémico and holístico, as they can not comprise the global characteristics of a system (the territory) and his operation analysing separately the parts that compose it. From here the suitability that the economic activities study of form interrelated with the physical context, social, politician, cultural, historical, demographic and environmental.
3.) Since the elements that conform the space are the human beings, the companies, the institutions, the half natural and the infrastructures, is important that the alumnado assume the importance to purchase a wide and dialectic perspective to the hour to study the territory, his characteristics and the economic demonstrations that houses.
4.) If, likewise, it considers the space like a group of fixed and flows, the alumnado has to comprise the paper that represents the territory and the activities that in him develop in the breast of a current stage in which the fixed are increasingly artificial and more tied to the floor, whereas the flows are increasingly diverse, wide, numerous and fast.
5.) The alumnado has to comprise that in the space materialises the historical memory, being a place of meeting of the past and of the future by means of the socioeconomic relations of the present. However, it does not treat of a mere physical support of the historical facts, economic, social, cultural or politicians, but of a socioeconomic product and that, as such, finds integrated by multiple factors interrelated. The complexity of the space phenomena constitutes an intrinsically geographic difficulty.
6.) The alumnado has to assume that the territory and his socioeconomic activities do not reduce to the panorama or observable landscape (earths, natural resources, cities, villages, factories, infrastructures, networks of transport, teams), as the phenomena and relations less visible also allow to comprise, and perhaps with greater intensity and precision, the organisation of the space. It is the case of the political powers, economic and financial, the relations and conflicts of class, the taking of decisions, the paper of the centres of gestión of the territory, the selective investments, the flows of the capital, the diffusion of the innovations, the markets or the external economies, that is to say, factors that possess a decisive influence in the creation, dynamic and control of the territories, of the activities that house and of the processes that in them develop .
