Special features regarding teaching

The subject has a distinctly international orientation. In addition to the usual standards such as the integration of English literature into teaching, presence at international conferences and seminars, etc. - among other things, this is also reflected in the obligatory stay abroad at a partner university and the possible double degree in the Master TRP, the high presence of visiting professors (also from China, for example), the long-standing offer of guest lectures by international professors in the lecture series Space-Economy-Society (acquisition of ECTS possible) or also the excursions. In addition, the KU's International Office offers a wide range of services.

Support for founders

The "Centre for Entrepreneurship" of the KU, headed by a member of the department (holder of the chair of tourism), is of central importance here. In fact, several successful start-ups have already emerged from the subject by former employees, e.g. TourismusZukunft. Accordingly, there is basically broad experience with start-ups.

Other special features

The courses of Geography are characterised by a very strong integration of theory and practice. The focus within this is the impartation of both theoretical concepts and models as well as their critical understanding and application-oriented implementation.
