The Department of Soil Science represents the soil science in its full range for students of the Bachelor/Master programs of Environmental Sciences, Environmental Biosciences, Physical geography (PdEO) Geoarchaeology as well as B.Ed. and M.Ed. Geography and Biology. Especially the Master programs and their further specializations in environmental evaluation, modeling and restoration, and dynamics of processes on the earth’s surface, allow a specific, qualified focus within the entire spectrum of the environmental, biological and geological sciences.

Along with the specific aspects of soil science, interdisciplinary aspects such as sustainable soil use, flood control, waste management, the legislation of soil protection and many more are addressed. We aspire a close collaboration with other Departments, authorities and individuals within courses and research projects.
