Department of Geography

Geography, in the British style, represents the exploration of landscapes and the intricate relationship shared between individuals and their environment. It is the profound investigation of the “Earth” as humanity’s cherished abode. This subject is a rapidly burgeoning field within the realm of social sciences, offering a vast and comprehensive outlook. It transcends being merely an academic discipline, boasting multifarious practical applications. The thematic scope of geography extends far beyond the realms of mountains, plateaus, plains, and rivers; it boldly ventures into the realm of Geo-informatics, encompassing two groundbreaking disciplines: Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

Embracing the breadth of its reach, geography unfurls a plethora of career opportunities for students, contingent upon their chosen specializations at the postgraduate level. Additionally, geography serves as a treasure trove of knowledge, likely explaining its prominence as a favored and high-scoring subject in civil services and other competitive examinations. Beyond academia and career prospects, it instills a profound reverence for the natural world within the individual, nurturing a deep-seated love for and understanding of nature.

Courses Outcome

1. Physical Geography (GEOGP101CC) The outcome of the program is that students gain knowledge about the three spheres of the earth such as Lithosphere, Atmosphere, and Hydrosphere.
2. General Cartography (Practical) (GEOGP102 CC) The students learn about the techniques of making maps and diagrams.
3. Human Geography (GEOGP201CC) The main purpose of the course is to make aware students about man-environment relation and his related activities.
4. Environmental Geography (GEOGP202CC) The Environmental Geography prepares students for a career as leaders in understanding and addressing complex environmental issues from a problem-oriented, interdisciplinary perspective.
5. Regional Planning and Development (GEOGP203SEC) The students will develop the values necessary for the effective practice of planning. They will acquire a solid base of knowledge in the principles and practices of learning, including urban spatial structure, local public finance, economics of development, infrastructure provision, and globalization.
6. Remote Sensing and GPS (GEOGP204SEC) The objective of the course is to prepare the students in identifying, analyzing, and solving geospatial problems.
7. Geography of India (GEOGP303-1DSE) The outcome of the course is to make the students understand the physical, socio-cultural, and economic perspective of India.
8. Disaster Management (GEOGP304-1DSE) The aim of the program is to build the capacity to obtain, analyze, and communicate information on risks, relief needs, and lessons learned from earlier disasters in order to formulate strategies for the future.
9. Geographic Information System (Practical) (GEOGP301SEC) The primary goal of the course is to educate students in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), providing opportunities to analyze data, explore issues, problem solve, and evaluate situations in a geographic and spatial context.
10. Field Techniques and Survey based Project Report (Practical) (GEOGP302SEC) The main objective of this course is to impart relevant information about data collection and to carry out fieldwork and preparation of field reports.
11. GE-1 Disaster Risk Reduction (GEOGP305-GE1) This course is designed to give students a basic idea of different disasters (natural and anthropogenic) and preventive measures to reduce them.
12. GE-2 Sustainability and Development (GEOGP306-GE2) The main goal of this program is to develop a sustainable future approach in which students will have an understanding of their socio-economic and environmental responsibilities as future professionals and citizens.
