Special features regarding teaching

The diversity of geographical sub-disciplines offered by experts from the field, non-university research institutions and foreign universities is a special feature of the content. The methodological diversity and the interlocking of methodological training with questions of human-environment research in contexts of research-based learning are among the focal points. Students can continue to gain practical experience through internships.
