Bonn University - Department of Geography

BilderHP_Startseite_engl.jpg

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 and has fourteen independent research units that encompass a wide variety of geographical topics. Geomorphology, Hydrology, Development Geographies and Remote Sensing are just a few examples of our wide choice of research fields in Human and Physical Geographies. Each of our research fields is under the auspices of 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. Our research units are combined in the common interest of risk analysis that embodies one of three major research priorities at the Department.
