Welcome Message

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to the website of the Department of Geography and Resource Development, University of Ghana. Here you will find information about our faculty, students, and academic programmes.

One of the attractions of studying Geography is the multi-disciplinary nature of the subject. The Department has top-notch faculty and a welcoming staff that make us the choice of place to work or study. Our faculty pursue diverse areas of research including: human-environment interactions, waste management and urban sustainability, population and health, rural development, tourism, migration and geospatial technologies; all geared towards cutting edge solutions to contemporary social and environmental change. We have excellent facilities to support our work, including state-of-the-art Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing laboratories. In addition to our strong PhD and Masters programmes, undergraduate students in the Department are offered the opportunity to participate in research projects supervised by faculty. Students are encouraged to join in faculty-led research projects or develop their own independent projects.

You are encouraged to explore our site to familiarise yourself with our faculty and their research focus, the different academic programmes and learn more about the courses we offer. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about the Department and the opportunities offered.
