INTRODUCTION
  • The Department was established in April 1988 and
    has a small faculty of six teachers and eleven
    supporting staff technical as well as
    non-technical.
  • The Department provides advance education in
    Geography through academic programmes leading
    M.Sc. to Ph.D.
  • The academic programme provides specialized
    courses in Glacial Geomorphology, Fluvial
    geomorphology, Geo-ecology, Resource Geography
    and Population Settlement Geography
  • The Department has strong Physical as well as
    Human Geography component and this is the only
    Department in the country that has introduced
    Glacial Geomorphology as one of the courses at
    Post-Graduate level.
  • Apart from teaching work seminars are organized
    in various field in Geography from M.Sc. Ist to
    IVth semester Students.
  • The Department has completed two Glacial
    Projects on Himalaya sponsored and funded by
    Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi
    and a project on Ecology and Management of
    Pastureland funded by Department of Forests, JK
    Government. Through these projects the Department
    has developed well equipped Geomorphology, Soil
    and Cartographic Lab with sophisticated
    instruments.

Cont.
  • The Department intends to start certain advance
    training carrier-oriented courses during XIth
    plan.
  • The UGC team has appreciated the Department for
    undertaking challenging projects during VIIIth
    five-year plan for setting up high site testing
    facilities at high altitudes.
  • Many of the Post-Graduates of the Department are
    holding responsible positions in state and
    Central Government and in Multinational Companies
    dealing with GIS and number of our students is
    holding senior position in banking and other
    services in the country.

VISION
  • In order to achieve the academic excellence the
    department, in addition to the existing thrust
    areas namely Glaciology, Forest Ecology,
    Geo-ecology and Regional Development visualizes
    to achieve the following long and short time
    objectives.
  • Long Time Objectives
  • 1. State of Jammu Kashmir is no less beautiful
    in its natural grandeur than even Switzerland and
    is considered to be a heaven on earth. Studies in
    the Geography of Tourism in such a state cannot
    be ignored. As such department wants to develop
    this subject to enlarge the scope of its students
    for jobs in tourist industry of not only JK
    State and the entire Himalayan Region but in the
    country as a whole.
  • 2. The department in collaboration with
    Government of Jammu Kashmir in general and the
    Town and Planning department in particular plans
    to establish a sister department of Town and
    Country Planning. After obtaining the PG Degree
    in Geography (Economics, Sociology and
    Engineering) limited number of students (on
    merit) would be admitted for a job-oriented
    course in Town and Country Planning as well as in
    (b) Rural/Regional Planning and Development.
  • 3. Research work and research publication is an
    integral part of the academic excellence. As such
    department now feels that it is mature enough to
    launch a research journal of national and
    international standard to widen to research in
    the department. However, it may take some more
    time to achieve this objective yet it will remain
    a major objective to be achieved in the next five
    years.
  • 4. Department wants to develop Forest Ecology,
    Glaciology, Water, Environmental and other
    resource management specializations as these
    resources are basic to the state of Jammu
    Kashmir.
  • Short Time Objectives
  • 1. Efforts to extent the accommodation of the
    department.
  • 2. Enrichment of Library with relevant books and
    journals.
  • 3. Starting M.Phil Courses.
