Welcome to the homepage of the Geography Unit, Fribourg University (Switzerland). Part of the Department of Geosciences, Geography has belonged to the Faculty of Sciences since its foundation in 1896. For one hundred years directed by a single professor, it has grown in size in particular during the 1970s and obtained its present structure in 1996.
Since that time, human and physical geography have been treated in a balanced way with 2 professors each, linked and supported by a small but vigorous group of geomatics.
The Unit excels in a number of research fields in physical geography, and human geography, and geographic information systems and numerical space analysis (for details see the research groups’ sites)
