Module 4: General Geography 1 (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students have an enhanced overview of the two main areas of general geography. Students understand the basic processes of the spheres of natural space and of resulting phenomena; they can apply the theory methods and problem issues of human geography emerging from the development of the sub disciplines of human geography and they can apply the findings of the two main areas in the sense of an understanding between society and the environment to specific spatial issues.
Module 6: Cartography, Statistics (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students master the basics of projection theory, can read maps and for specific questions can choose appropriate descriptive statistical methods of evaluation and interpret the results correctly.
Module 7: Regional Geography 1 (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students possess knowledge of typical structures and processes and they can evaluate solution attempts at spatial problem issues in a regional perspective.
Module 11: Physical Geography (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: Positive completion of compulsory modules 1 and 4.
Learning Outcome: Students know the basic processes in the sub disciplines of geomorphology, hydro-geography as well as soil and vegetation geography and can exactly name their species.
Module 12: Practices in Geography (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 6 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: Positive completion of compulsory modules 1 and 4.
Learning Outcome: Students can work independently on practice orientated issues through observation, field mapping, surveys and analysis.
Module 14: The Alps and Europe (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: Positive completion of compulsory modules 1 and 4.
Learning Outcome: Students learn the natural-spatial spheres that are typical of Europe: lithosphere, hydrospehre, kryosphere, atmosphere, biosphere) and the societal spatial structures.
Module 17: Global Change (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: Positive completion of compulsory modules 1 and 4.
Learning Outcome: Students understand the basic processes and consequences of global climate change and can analytically assess the complex connections between society and environment.
Module 18: Regional Geography 2 (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 5 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: Positive completion of compulsory modules 1 and 4.
Learning Outcome: Students can recognise unknown regions, forms of landscape, spatial structures, space-distinguishing processes and the structural fabric of the society-environment relationship; they can estimate the potential of landscape for use with various economic aims, undertake regionalisation projects, identify spatial problems and work out possible solutions.
