What we teach ...

Our teaching represents an integral part of the study programmes offered at the Department of Geography and Regional Research. Already in the Bachelor and Teacher degrees, but particularly in the Master and PhD programmes as well as the Master in Environmental Sciences (in English), possibilities to specialize in the fields of physical geography are manifold.

Here, teaching is tightly coupled to the research in the group in order to allow students to profit from the available expertise, and to bring them in touch with applied questions, enhancing their chances in various segments of the job market.
