Bachelor Programme Geography

In brief

Back to Overview Education and Teaching FAQs Bachelor Programme Citation Guidlines

The bachelor programme Geography will be of interest to you if...

… ecology is more than a buzzword for you
… you are interested in regional development
… you want to reflect on the change happening in our living environmment
… you want to know what the slogan "think globally, act locally" could mean in practice
you want to learn more about the use and the handling of geographic information systems (GIS)

What will you learn in the programme?

Geography as a field of study combines the social sciences with the natural sciences. It deals with social, political, economic and ecological processes that shape human-environment relations. Our Bachelor Programme in Geography focuses on two main goals:

The first goal is to introduce the fundamentals of Physical and Human Geography. The programme gives broad insights into the respective subfields of academic geography. Furthermore it provides basic (socio-)scientific and philosophical knowledge, which is required for understanding modern academic geography. You will gain an overview of various analytical tools and methods of geography and related disciplines.

The second goal is to establish a multi-perspective view on the so-called "major issues" of the 21st century, e.g. global environmental change, globalisation, urbanisation and social disparities. You will be trained to step out of your preconceived ideas about foreign spaces and learn to find your way into different cultural perspectives. The programme provides geographical knowledge which allows you to cope with the complex demands of the 21st century.
