Geography is one of the most exciting subjects to study at university. We live in an interdependent world caught up in chains of events that span the globe. We depend upon an increasingly fragile physical environment, whose complex interactions require sophisticated analysis and sensitive management.The Geography Department is one of the leading departments accompanied the establishment of the faculty of Arts.

Geographers study the material and symbolic transformation of the earth in relationship to both human and natural processes. In keeping with contemporary global shifts in culture, the environment, politics and economics, the boundaries of the geographic discipline are dynamic. Geography is both a natural science and social science as it examines people and their environment and serves as a bridge between the physical and cultural worlds.
