Geography - Bachelor of Social Sciences (Hons)

Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours (Geography)


The Geography Program was originally a department before the FSKK was restructured. This department was established in conjunction with the establishment of UKM in May 1970. Starting with 7 students, the Geography Program (formerly the Department of Geography) has produced 620 graduates until 2007. In addition to offering core knowledge in the disciplines of Human Geography and Physical Geography, this program also applies various application knowledge in line with current technological developments such as Geographic Information System (GIS) applications, modeling for the purpose of predicting a geographical phenomenon and remote sensing applications (RS). In addition, a center of excellence, the Earth Observation Center (EOC) has been established and placed under the operation of the Geography Program since 1996. The method of course implementation is reviewed internally by UKM through various mechanisms planned by the Academic Planning and Management Committee (JPPA) Universities and Faculties.
