Geomorphology at the University of Bayreuth is part of the Bachelor's programme in Geography and the Master's programme in Environmental Geography. In addition to a broad basic education, our focus is on geomorphological processes currently occurring in the landscape - e.g. sediment transport in rivers and on slopes, weathering processes, natural hazards in alpine and extra-alpine areas. Many practical courses take place in manageable small groups. We have a wide range of state-of-the-art investigation methods at our disposal, such as laser scanning, geophysical methods and various measuring sensors, as well as a sediment laboratory and a climate laboratory for rocks. In addition to our alpine investigation areas, we have instrumented test areas in the vicinity of Bayreuth for teaching purposes. Our Department of Geosciences opens up numerous combination possibilities in the field of geoecology during the degree programme.
