Geography is a particularly broad discipline. It focuses on the differentiation of (natural and cultural) spaces of the Earth. It describes and explains the relationships between models and evaluations of space in order to draw consequences for spatial planning. Thus, the field is concerned with natural as well as social and economic issues. Geography is divided into two large subdisciplines, each with various areas of specialization: physical and cultural geography. The former includes geomorphology, climatology, hydrology, soil science, biogeography, and geoecology, and the latter includes population geography, social geography, historical geography, economic geography, transportation geography, and political geography.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
