study content

Geography is a wide-ranging discipline that combines social and natural science issues and methods, focusing above all on the interaction between people and physical environment. The Bachelor's degree programme in Geography teaches the subject-specific fundamentals of physical geography and human geography. Students can set individual focal points by choosing their courses, e.g. climate and biogeography, soil science, population, economics, urban and spatial geography. Central to later opportunities on the labour market is learning concrete working methods using practical examples, for example through field research or work in the laboratory.
