At the Department of Geography, students conduct comprehensive studies on the mutual interactions between the natural environment and human activity, which are the key constituent elements of an urban area. We train leading researchers and professional engineers through cutting-edge research in the various fields of geography, including geomorphology and geology, climatology, environmental geography, paleoenvironmental studies, GIS, and human geography.
In this department, the tourism science is included as the alternative department. Tourism science studies are mainly concerned with the reasonable utilization of environmental and urban resources.
The graduate degree programs in the Department of Geography are strongly research oriented, and the completion of a thesis is the main focus at both the Masters and Ph.D. levels. The Department has excellent research, analytical and computing laboratories. Our large and active group of graduate students and faculty conduct research in locations all over the world.
