The Bern model of geography

The geography program in Bern is characterised by a wide range of courses and research topics in physical geography, human geography and in geographies of sustainability. The BSc major program can be combined with numerous minor subjects. Under the MSc program we offer both a mono master and a master major. The mono master is a research master of 120 ECTS, including a master thesis of 60 ECTS - standard is 30 ECTS – which offers the unique opportunity to intensively study a research topic of your choice. The combination of the broad thematic range of courses (60 ECTS) and an in-depth MSc thesis are very much in demand on the labour market. The master major (120 ECTS) including a 30 ECTS thesis and a 30 ECTS minor subject is of particular interest if you plan to become a high school teacher.
