The Department of Geography offers both BA and BSc programs in Geography, a BSc program in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and it is closely integrated with the spectrum of Environment programs. The general structure of the Geography programs is the foundation course (1st year), the core stream courses (2nd year) and specializations in upper years. The programs, particularly in the first two years, integrate various elements of the human-social-cultural and the biogeophysical traditions with environmental perspectives and analytical methods. After the foundation course(s), students are required to take two courses from their selected core stream and two courses from the other three core streams before they can choose their specialization.
