In the present global scenario, Geography tries to synthesize the cultural and physical aspects of planet Earth while focussing on spirit of place. The department is also striving to have solutions for various problems, i.e., Global warming, Ozone depletion, loss of biodiversity etc. caused by irrational and insensitive use of nature by human beings. The department is highly optimistic that it will produce scholars who are equally equipped with technological knowledge as well rationality about sustainable development of mankind and of the planet as well.
