Physical and Human Geography

Geography studies the spatial interaction of processes in nature and society. Geographical knowledge provides the basis for a comprehensive understanding of the Earth system, for future-proof spatial planning and for solutions to spatial conflicts.

The geography program at KIT prepares students for the teaching profession at the Gymnasium level. On the one hand, it is about the acquisition of human and physical-geographical knowledge, on the other hand it is about didactic and pedagogical competences. Learning on site and working in the field sharpen the integrative and interdisciplinary view.

Further occupational fields for geographers (DGfG) (in German). For information on the study subject Lehramt Geographie an Gymnasien, please refer to the "Study and Teaching" pages of the KIT.
