Geography studies the processes that alter and shape the world we live in.

Geographers aim to understand reciprocal influences and dependencies in their field, they document change, formulate scenarios and develop sustainable plans of action for the future. This includes examining both physical processes and the interplay between humans and the environment. Physical geography explores morphological processes on the earth’s surface, investigates the properties of water, snow and ice in the hydrological cycle, and studies soil and vegetation in climate change. Human geography and economic geography analyze how human beings, groups and institutions shape their habitats and how they act within them. A distinctive characteristic of the institute is the strong emphasis on modeling and quantitative methods. Advanced geographic information systems and remote sensing technologies are instrumental in modeling the processes being investigated as well as in illustrating and understanding spatial phenomena.

The Master of Science (MSc) in Geography offers students the opportunity to specialize within the field of geography.

  • Physical Geography
  • Human Geography
  • Remote Sensing
  • Geographic Information Science

The Master's program in Geography without a specialization is suitable for generalists. It is a qualification for careers in geography. The Master’s degree also serves as the basis for a dissertation and forms the academic foundation to work toward a Teaching Diploma for Secondary Education.

Educational goals

This major program offers an in-depth subject-specific focus and guides students towards applied research. Students learn to apply theories, methods and approaches from certain fields in Geography to problems in research and practice, and to critically classify and reflect on these. Students are able to defend a position on a scientific basis and to critically reflect on and defend their own research results within a scientific discussion.

Career possibilities

Geography graduates have promising employment opportunities thanks to their comprehensive education. This is particularly true where teamwork and interdisciplinary collaboration are required. Opportunities for graduates include positions in planning, architectural or engineering firms, industrial companies and in the private service industry as well as in non-profit organizations, in public administration and in the educational system.
