The M. A. Geography curriculum in the Centre at Jawaharlal Nehru University is unique in terms of a judicious mix of courses which combine the classical with the modern and the theoretical with the practical in response to emerging disciplinary challenges, particularly in the Indian context. 


The M.A programme in Geography from Jawaharlal Nehru University consists of four semesters spread over two years. In addition to other compulsory and a few optional courses, the two compulsory physical and socio-economic field based courses are conducted during the summer and winter vacations respectively. 

Key Features

  • In the classical traditions in geography, fieldwork occupies a prime place. The M. A. students are exposed to two compulsory courses that are exclusively based on physical and social field surveys. 
  • Apart from getting trained in specific methodologies and gaining first hand field observations -often in rural settings - prolonged group living under spartan conditions helps students develop interpersonal skills and mutual interdependencies and team spirit.

Programme Structure

Courses include: 
  • Geomorphology and Pedology with Special Reference to India
  • Regional Geography of India
  • Economic Geography with Special reference to India
  • Quantitative Methods in Geography
  • History of Geographical Thought
  • Human Ecology and Ecosystem
