Geography

Scope and Importance

       

Vision “To sharpen the techniques, skills and knowledge about Geography among the students for global competency and sustainable development’’   Mission “To make every individual responsible for sustain and save the Earth’’

Geography is the science of the study of the Earth. The subject has interdisciplinary, dynamic and scientific nature. Physical Geography and Human Geography are major branches of this subject. Presently the subject has wide scope in the field of planning and spatial analysis. Geoinformatics (Geographical Information System, Remote Sensing and GPS) technology and its application is new stream of the study of geography.

         It also creates job opportunities for the students of Geography. Applied Geomorphology, Coastal and fluvial Geomorphology, Environmental Modeling, Climatology and Hydrology, Soil Geography, Human Geography, Statistics Geography, Tourism Geography, Regional Planning, Cartography, Surveying, Regional Geography, Environmental Geography, Resources and its management, Agriculture, Settlements, Economic Geography, Geopolitics etc are major sub branches of the geography which focus in understanding and resolving about the issues of the environment, culture and sustainable development.
