Link to Map of Department
The NUI Galway campus is located on the western bank of the River Corrib and
extends from near the city centre to the mouth of Lough Corrib. The Department
was established in 1962, the Chair of Geography in 1968. The Department is housed
in purpose-built accommodation between the Concourse and the river. It has a
large practical room with cartographic facilities, a number of small
laboratories, a PC and GIS suite and an extensive map collection. Geography
students have access to the university computer network.
Typically, each full-time member of the faculty teaches three speciality courses
per academic year to second- and third- year students and contributes to
first-year lectures, practical classes and field class preparation and delivery.
In addition, the Department is actively involved in the delivery of courses
through the medium of Irish, which are taught by staff members with competence in
the language and part-time members of staff.
Programmes of Study
and Degrees offered:
The Department offers undergraduate courses in physical and human geography as
part of a three-year Bachelor of Arts degree programme. Four subjects are taken
in the first year and two subjects thereafter. Geography may be combined in the
second and third years with one of 18 other subjects offered by the Arts Faculty,
normally history, archaeology, economics, political science and sociology,
mathematics, Irish, French or Italian.
At postgraduate level, the degrees of M. Litt. and Ph.D. are offered by thesis.
There are currently fifteen postgraduate students in the Department which are
funded through a host of different funding arrangements.
Geography websites maintained within the Department:
Historical Geography Research Group (HGRG), a study group of the Royal
Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers).
Details of conferences, funding opportunities, contacts and events in historical
and cultural geography are contained within.
The site is maintained here in the Department by Dr. John Morrissey.
Spatial Information Unit. This site details the work of the Nasc Spatial
Information Unit, which is located in the Department of Geography. The unit is
carrying out research in the field of geographic information systems (GIS) and
spatial modelling, applied to regional planning. The work is being undertaken for
Nasc, the Western Ireland European liaison body which principally represents the
Gaeltacht regions of the western seaboard of Ireland.
