Studying at our chair

Studying Social Geography opens up spatial life-worlds by reading, thinking and experiencing.​​

Research and teaching understood as a dialogue, the facilitation of creativity and openness to unconventional concepts and methods – these are our cornerstones for a reflexive knowledge transfer.

The team at the chair of Social Geography offers the students an intellectual environment that is constantly connected to the knowledge and experiences emanating from our recent research and field work on a global scale.
