Institute of Geography
All human activities take place in a geographic space of enormous diversity and continuous transformations. The research and teaching activities at the Institute for Geography are aimed at improving understanding of the causes and effects of global change and at working up problem-solving approaches, which enable sustainable development in the Anthropocene.
RESEARCH AT THE INSTITUTE
Research at the institute is very diverse. In the areas of society, the environment and resources, we deal with change in our environment, particularly climate and land use, as well as the transformation of our society(ies). We examine the management of natural and digital resources, relationships between environment and health, as well as local, regional and national mobility and their factors. A strong focus on methodological development in close collaboration of methodological, didactic and scientific disciplines is our unique characteristic. Geographical education and the visual communication of complex relationships round off our research profile.
The Institute for Geography supports approx. 1700 students on its courses (as of June 2019). Our graduates praise the study options as well as the possibilities for profile building. Our respective current annual topic?connects the interdisciplinary range of curricula.
Important study details, links to module catalogues, information on examinations and more can be found on our Study pages.
The institute offers Bachelor degree courses in geography and geoinformatics (together with the Institute for Informatics) and is represented within other courses with optional topics.
Our master’s courses in geography, geoinformatics, climate and environmental sciences as well as global change ecology reflect the diversity of our research.
In the teaching courses, all combinations can be studied with all school types (Gymnasium (grammar), Realschule (secondary school), Mittelschule (middle school), Grundschule (primary school), Drittelfach (three Rs subject).

?Niedrigwasser-Management wird nach allen Prognosen auch 2020 Forst- und Landwirtschaft, Beh?rden und Politik vor immer gr??ere Herausforderungen stellen. Was bedeutet zunehmender Wassermangel für die Wasserversorgung in Bayern?...“ BR Doku
Trockenheit, Hochwasser, Megacity: Der Klimawandel wirkt sich auf viele Bereiche aus. Im neu gegründeten Zentrum für Klimaresilienz werden bereits bestehende Schwerpunkte zur Erforschung des Klimawandels durch neun weitere Professuren erg?nzt. Ziel der Forschung wird sein, ganzheitliche und umsetzbare Strategien zur Anpassung an die unabwendbaren Folgen des Klimas zu entwickeln und zwar auf regionaler, nationaler und internationaler Ebene. Wir freuen uns, dass im Kontext des Zentrums am Institut für Geographie im Jahr 2021 ein Lehrstuhl für Urbane Klimaresilienz sowie ein Lehrstuhl für die Klimaresilienz von Kultu?kosystemen aufgebaut werden.
