About :

The Department of Geography at the Madras University is one of the oldest Departments in this country and celebrated its Golden Jubilee in the year 1983. The Department has built high traditions of teaching and research in the past 68 years. The academic efforts received a great fillip in 1976 when the faculty was strengthened and new courses for M.Sc. Applied Geography was introduced. The department has periodically updated the curriculum. The department was in the fore front of implementing the Credit Based Semester System (CBSS).

The Department currently has academic programmes for M.Sc. and Ph.D. Degrees. The M.Sc. Applied Geography Programme is a very specialised one with heavy inputs on applied aspects of the discipline especially GIS, EIA and Remote Sensing. The intake of students is limited to 10. The success of the training imparted to the students is reflected in their ready absorption in jobs and in specialised programmes. From the academic year 2000-2001 onwards a new need based industry oriented programme viz. M.Sc. Spatial Information Technology is offered in addition to the existing course. This course is to promote GIS technology and mapping science in our country. PG Diploma in GIS Management is yet another need based course offered as University – Industry and Community Interaction Centre (UICIC) programme. It is offered as an evening programme from the academic year 1999-2000 onwards. The Ph.D. programme is a specialsed one with emphasis on socially relevant research such as agricultural and rural geography, watershed management, integrated area of planning, marketing geography, urban and metropolitan problems, quantitative and spatial analysis in geography, social and area analysis, heath care delivery systems and environmental problems.
