We teach BSc / BA and MSc / MA classes with the goals to:
Our classes are usually offered as integrated courses that combine lectures, discussions, seminars, lab exercises, or field work. Many of our classes are based on problem-based learning and project-oriented work. Wherever possible, we strive to closely couple teaching with our ongoing research.
We currently offer parts of the basic education in physical geography, as well as three elective classes. Here you can see our recommended teaching program for those wanting to emphasize biogeography, ecology, and conservation in your BSc. The classes described are our core modules. Electives could come from within or outside HU Berlin.
We are involved in three classes at the Master’s level. All classes at the Master’s level are held in English. Here we provide an overview of the MSc classes regularly offered, including suggestions for electives for those wanting to put an emphasis on biodiversity and/or land use.
