Department of Geography


Established in 1980, the department of geography aims to impart knowledge of physical and socio-economic environment of the surrounding himalayan foothills and the factors affecting all these. This is done through frequent field surveys, where students, guided by their teachers know about the surroundings and the problems and prospects. They are also encouraged to come up with suggessions about future development of the area.
