Geographies of international Development, Focus on Africa, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

The bachelor's programme "Geographies of international Development, Focus on Africa" is aimed specifically at students who are interested in development processes and development cooperation in Africa. It places the current dynamics of the manifold changes in Africa at the centre of the programme. The focus is on the natural, social, political, and economic conditions of transformation processes in Africa. The study in the core subject is supplemented by a freely selectable minor.

In my work with clients from politics, business, and development cooperation, I still benefit from the methods and expertise I learned during my studies. The best thing is the close network with both graduates and lecturers – long after finishing my studies. You're a GEFA not only during your studies, you remain a GEFA forever.
