Graduates of the Bachelor’s degree programme in Geography with a 25% weighting, possess fundamental knowledge of the terms, theories and concepts of Physical Geography and/or Human Geography, as well as Geoinformatics. Where students have a specialisation, they acquire initial practical experience in various methods of data collection and interpretation. These include site observation, cartography, aerial and satellite imaging, laboratory methods, statistical analyses, working with geographical information systems (GIS), archive research, interview and survey techniques, literary evaluations, as well as text and media analyses. Graduates are able to apply these working methods to solve simple, scientific questions.
The Bachelor’s degree programme in Geography (25%) can be studied in one of two variations: Where students select a specialisation, they complete modules in Human Geography or Physical Geography only. In addition to this, students may visit lectures, seminars or courses on geographical methods (cartography, geographical information systems, statistics), or applied geography. Where students complete the Bachelor’s degree programme in Geography (25%) without a specialisation, they complete basic modules with equal weightings in both Physical Geography and Human Geography.
