  • Special features regarding teaching
    The primary goal is to improve the quality of teaching by orienting it to the principles of research-based learning and by more closely integrating the content and competencies taught in the individual modules.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    University Maynooth, Irland; Oulu University, Finnland; Sevilla, Spanien; Noumea, Frankreich; Göteborg, Schweden; Lyon, Frankreich; Lalaguna, Spanien; Salamanca, Spanien; Groningen, Niederlande; Guelph, Kanada; NTNU, Taiwan; Portsmouth, GB
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Two very well-equipped CIP rooms with 54 stations; the geomorphological-sedimentological lab is equipped for the recovery of sediment cores at the sediment/water interface, for long sediment cores and for the monitoring of particle flux in the water column of a lake. In addition to the non-destructive investigation of sediment cores by means of physical methods, the laboratory equipment is designed for the execution of analysis with high sample throughput, as is necessary for temporal high-resolution analyses of lacustrine sediment sequences.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The working groups of the Institute of Geography work on a broad spectrum of current geographical issues. The two Physical Geography professors deal with Geomorphology and polar research on the one hand, and climate and questions on Vegetation Geography on the other. The two Human Geography professors specialise in Economic Geography as well as Urban Geography. Moreover, the Institute has a professorship for Sustainable Regional Development in Globalisation assigned to it. Two assistant professors carry out research in the area of Geographical Didactics.
  • Support for founders
    University-wide, BRIDGE and Unitransfer exist to qualify students for business start-ups or to support them in setting up a business. These offer training and qualification modules as well as network meetings for graduates who would like to become self-employed. The Career Centre, the ProUB doctoral centre, and the BYRD junior researcher centre for postdoctoral students also present corresponding opportunities.
