study content

In addition to the acquisition of geographic core competences, the M.Sc. Geography offers the possibility to focus on one of four subject areas, which are deliberately oriented towards higher-level issues and not towards the classic sub-disciplines of geography. This takes into account both the holistic approach of the systems science of geography and the necessary subject depth. The Master's programme in Geography in Augsburg is also characterised by numerous cooperations and internship opportunities with numerous regional authorities and companies.
