Geography (GEOA) is a lab based honours subject available in Day shift under the BACHELOR OF SCIENCE Course in our college.
The department of Geography started its journey as a General subject in 2002. The Honours course was introduced in the following year with the sole vision to cater to the growing academic needs of the students. Since then, the department has witnessed increasing number of students with each passing year, both in the Honours and General courses. It has abundant collections of various geographical books and data Sheets in its Seminar Library for ready reference to the faculty members and students. Besides, the library of the college is being enriched each year with complimentary copies of the reference books that are easy available to the students and teachers. The department also provides basic instruments for practical works and supports six computers with RS-GIS Softwares. The department owns a number of GPS units which have been proved to be useful during the field surveys. Each year, both the Honours and General course students are guided for outdoor field surveys with the active participation of the teachers in order to get the actual hands-on experience of the application of the study, which is indeed a wonderful experience for both the students and teachers.
The department runs in two shiftsMorning (Womens section) and Day (Co-educational section). General classes of the Morning section are held during the stipulated timings, while the Honours classes of the Morning section are clubbed together and held with the Day section.
