The Department of Geography is the only earth science department of the College. Established in 1961 during the inception of the College, the department initially offered the undergraduate general degree course of study. It has been offering the honours degree course also from the 2005-06 academic session. The department with its dedicated staff and student-friendly laboratory aims at training the students to become competent new age geographers. Environment consciousness being the call of the day, geography as a discipline has emerged as a very relevant and contemporary field of study. The students of this department not only know about the earth as a physical entity, but also get a perspective of its resources and their judicious use, making them environment-aware citizens of tomorrow.
The department organizes regular excursions for the honours and general course students separately. Tutorials, class test and student seminars are conducted for the evaluation of students. A wall magazine “Genesis” is brought out regularly by the students of this department.
The Department is also served by Guest Lecturers.
