Department of Geography

The first batch of post graduate students got admitted in the Department of Geography in December 2008. The department tries to provide a stimulating research and learning environment together with quality teaching by appointing eminent guest faculties from different Universities and Institutions. The objective of the course is to introduce the students to the philosophical and methodological foundations of the subject and to sensitise the students with development issues, policies and programmes designed for regional development. The integration of the course with geology, ecology and environmental sciences gives the course an interdisciplinary approach.

The thrust areas of the department are Geomorphology, Application of Remote Sensing and GIS and Regional Development and Planning.
