The Bachelor's degree programme Geography combines elements from the Social and Natural Sciences and explores the ways in which humans shape their world and their environment socially, politically, economically, and ecologically. The degree programme teaches in-depth knowledge in the areas of Physical Geography and Human Geography. Geoecology issues, sustainable regional development, and numerous economic, political and social challenges link these two disciplines thematically. Alongside the classical methods used for the description, explanation, and assessment of social and natural processes of spatial development, Geography also comprises specific methods, such as cartography, remote sensing, and geographical information systems (GIS). These serve to depict, analyse, model, and simulate these same natural structures and processes, which represent the object of research in Geography.
