Department of Geography


The Department of Geography has a rich history that spans more than 140 years of teaching and research. It is the largest and one of the most distinguished geography departments in Germany. It has 15 independent research groups that encompass a wide variety of geographical topics. Our research is organized around eight research clusters within three main research areas: water, risk and geomatics. Geomorphology, Hydrology, Development Geography and Remote Sensing are just a few examples of our wide choice of research clusters in Human and Physical Geographies. Each of our research fields is managed by one or more professors in the department. This enables us to provide our students with a high quality and unique education, especially if they choose an interdisciplinary or an applied study-approach.
