DEPARTMENT OF GEOGRPHY
PROGRAMME SPECIFIC OUTCOME


Geography Honours Course( CBCS and Part I+II+III System)

Geography mainly concerns changes in spatial attributes in a temporal perspective. The Honours programme in geography is tailored to meet the students’ specific educational and professional goals in mind. It focuses on spatial studies, qualitative as well as quantitative, and emphasises on human-environment relationship. During the first year of the programme, the students are trained on advanced concepts of physical and human geography. The third year allows them to concentrate on specific areas of the subject, on which they complete their field reports. After completing the course, the students will be amply prepared for professional careers in geography and allied disciplines like GIS and Remote Sensing. They will also be able to pursue M.A. /M.Sc. Course in Geography.
