In the introductory phase basics of natural sciences and social sciences are taught. After completing this phase students can attend the other courses – physical geography, statistics, human geography, social/economic geography, geoinformation and cartography. In the further course of the programme additional qualifications such as geoinformatics and remote sensing, methods of physical geography, global systems, economic geography and regional geography are taught. In the last year students have to write a bachelor's thesis. Knowledge in spatial and traffic planning as well as in spatial analysis will be taught. Moreover, students have to study a certain number of elective subjects in areas such as communication studies, gender studies, geology, sociology, foreign languages, computer sciences, European Union studies, ecology, and economic sciences. Practice-orientation is guaranteed by means of scientific outings and excursions. A specialisation in terms of content and/or methods in physical geography or human geography topics takes place by means of specialisation modules in the last year of studies and by the specific focus of the bachelor's thesis.
