Exams

The introductory phase provides an overview of geography and puts it in relation with studies and future jobs. Moreover, students will gain practical experience in working in the open country and they will also get familiar with IT tools that are useful for the discipline. This will be followed by the imparting of basic skills in cartography, statistics, remote sensing and geographical information systems. Other compulsory modules cover surveys and media didactics, basics and advanced courses in geography and finally applied geography. In the restricted electives students can choose three modules from the areas of subject-specific or professionally relevant extension curricula. Students have to study the free electives during their studies; they can also replace them by a work placement of at least 300 hours. The degree programme concludes with one theoretical and one application-oriented bachelor’s thesis.
