Courses Profiles

The Institute of Geography offers the B.A. and B.Sc. programme as well as a dual subject bachelor with and without a teaching option. The social science orientated B.A. focuses on human geography, while the natural science orientated B.Sc. concentrates on physical geography. The essential strength of the B.A. study programme is emphasizing the spatial dimension of socio-scientific topics and questions of the humanities. The B.Sc. programme links physical geographical and methodical issues with natural and Earth sciences. Moreover, B.A. students enrolled at the University of Oldenburg can choose geography at the University of Bremen as second subject.

In addition to the Master of Education designed for the education of future teachers, we offer a master programme in ‘Urban and Regional Development’ (M.A.). This master programme focuses on the dynamics of spatial differentiations in urban and regional contexts; it provides knowledge urban and regional transformation processes and integrates project-oriented teaching in the curriculum. This interdisciplinary master programme is collectively run by the Institutes of Geography and Sociology and therefore unique in urban and regional research. A third master programme with the focus on ‘Physical Geography: Environmental History’ (M.Sc.) is offered in cooperation with the Geoscience and Environmental Physics departments. The latter two master programmes are research orientated and enable a continuation towards a professional career in the field of (applied) science or – on an individual basis – in the framework of one of the offered PhD programmes.
