Bachelor Geography 120 ECTS

The study of geography provides the foundations of physical geography, human geography, regional geography as well as essential working methods of geography. The aim of the programme is to grant students fundamental knowledge of the most important branches of geography and to familiarise them with methods of geographical thinking and working. Therefore, special focus is placed on understanding basic geographic terms and theories, as well as methodological knowledge and the development of typical thought patterns. Hence, the central learning objective is to acquire skills to purposefully analyse, document, and assess spatial structures and development processes. Depending on the version of the studied degree programme, further specific learning targets are met.
