  • Special features regarding teaching
    Teaching draws on everyday problems and transforms these into scientific concepts. The use of a variety of teaching formats with high practical relevance (e.g. via internet and Facebook) makes the course very varied. The very good support ratio means multi-faceted individual support. The high-quality theoretical and methodical foundation is chosen with regard to central labour markets for students of Geography. German and international excursions provide a comparative view of spatial phenomena in the field.
