Being initiated in 2018, the Department of Geography experiences a steep growth and presently has a faculty strength of 2 members and a student strength of 600. We envision that the department will continue to build its reputation as one of the leading undergraduate geography programs under the GDC Women Pulwama in the areas of mapping science, global systems analysis, earth science, environmental analysis and planning, and urban and regional planning. Geography faculty will work to maintain, update and improve the curricula associated with these outstanding programs. We will also build on existing strengths by working towards the implementation of the climate systems science concentration. The department will continue to explore the development of undergraduate programs. The department will continue to play a significant and vital role in the general education program through the maintenance and improvement of Geography (like physical geography, human geography, climatology, oceanography, and world regional geography). Our programs and curricula will provide a balance of theory and technical skills, equipping students with an academic background that prepares them to address environmental, planning, and other geographically-oriented problems. We aim to aid our students in developing the capacity for both innovative and integrative thinking in a variety of professional and intellectual contexts. In order to help realize this demanding set of goals, the department will seek to add dynamic new faculty with a strong commitment to teaching.
