Brief Profile of the Department
The School had its genesis with the formulation of the Department of Geography in 1971 under the visionary Geographer Dr.(Late) Miss. A.R.Irawathy. Targeting the Southern districts which were out of reach to this branch of knowledge the Department offered M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes in Geography. By introducing innovating and emerging areas in the curriculum the Department made a notable contribution in the fields of Urban Geography, Medical Geography, Transport Geography, Agricultural Geography, Remote Sensing and GIS. The Department of Geography also initiated an Advanced Post Graduate Diploma in GIS and Remote Sensing Applications under the UGC Innovative Programme from 2007.
