Human Geography – Urban and Regional Research, Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Geography is a link between natural sciences, social sciences and economics. It is therefore divided into two broad areas: firstly, "physical geography", which deals with issues such as landscape development and climate change, and "human geography", which deals with issues such as population, cultural, and economic geography. The four-semester, consecutive Master's programme "Human Geography – Urban and Regional Research" offers you an interdisciplinary course in which you can set your own priorities.
My studies were characterised by diversity insofar as my fellow students and I were able to pursue our own interests and passions in different areas and this was supported at all times – in my case this was geographical real estate research. They were also always willing to talk about individual solutions, which, for example, made it possible to combine studies and an internship. In addition, Bayreuth was a great place to study. The City and the University have been growing together for a long time, offer a great cultural programme, an affordable housing situation, a lot of proximity to nature, and a refreshing contrast to the big city.
