Link to Map of Department

The 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 and Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG).

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.
