NCeHu 1075/03

Welcome to Sultan Qaboos University

College of Arts

     The major goals of the department are to graduate intellectually and technically qualified geographers, who can competently answer the needs of Omani society; train future teachers of geography; encourage research in geography; and increase scientific knowledge about geography. In order to accomplish these goals, the department offers several sub-majors such as the Science of Geography, Regional and Urban Planning, and Environmental Studies.

For purposes of instruction, the department uses scientific systems such as spatial and environmental analysis and also highly technical methods in fieldwork. To aid in student development, the department has been provided with two laboratories, one for geography and the other for computer maps.  In these laboratories, the  students practice map designing and execution, both by hand and computer.  Furthermore, the department has a weather forecasting station with sophisticated measuring equipment, which helps students practice reading and registering weather information.   For practical training, students, technicians, and academic staff are sent to ministries and other government organizations and, at times, abroad for training in innovative programs which offer state of the art equipment.

     Since the department was founded, eighty-one geography students have graduated, most of whom are working for organizations such as Petroleum Development of Oman (P.D.O.) and ministries, especially the Ministries of Transportation, Interior Affairs, Housing, and Defense.  A number of graduates are also working in government agencies in the Dhofar region.
