Geography

The Department of Geography is the only earth science department of the College. Established in 1998,the department initially offered the undergraduate general degree course. It has been offering the honours degree course also from the 2001 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.

 At present the department is managed by Two (02) Whole Time Contractual Permanent teachers and Three(03) invited teachers In an academic year, at all levels, Class Tests, Mid-term Examination and Selection Tests are held to assess the students’ progress and performance. The department organizes regular excursions for the honours and general course students separately. A wall magazine “Spectrum” is brought out regularly by the students of this department.

At the time of college admission the Department also takes into consideration the admission of deserving meritorious students coming from a poor economic background. This is in tune with the motto of the college to serve the deserving women coming from an underprivileged socio-economic background.
