Department of Geography

The Department of Geography runs Undergraduate Honours and General Courses under the Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) introduced in 2018-19 session and ongoing 1+1+1 system. Geography, as the discipline that bridges the Humanities and Science streams plays important role to cope up with the contemporary nature’s freaky incidents. The domain of geographical knowledge helps the learners to react with the nature in eco-friendly way, to utilize the natural resources in a sustainable manner. The discipline helps the scholar to interact with the society keeping their emotion in mind. The future prospects of the discipline of geography are remarkable. Especially, after the introduction of the geo-informatics and geo-spatial science in the field of geography, it has become one of the mother subjects of all modern social sciences. The learners can gain expertise in the field of Disaster Management like coastal management, river bank management, environmental management etc., all of which have high job prospects. In addition, students can pursue further higher studies and research, take up teaching jobs, appear for competitive examinations, gain employment as Geographical Information Systems officer or get a job in tourism industry, can become cartographer, environmental consultant, regional surveyor, nature conservation officer, etc.
