About the Department

Geography is one of the founding disciplines at the University of Zambia. The Department of Geography, located in the School of Natural Sciences, offers two degree programmes and services eight other programmes belonging to the school of Education.

The two programmes are the Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources programme for undergraduate students and the Masters of Science in Geography and Land Resources Survey for graduate students.

The mission of the Department of Geography as reflected in its aim of the Natural Resources programme is to contribute to national development through the production of human resources that can provide technical and managerial capacities in environment and natural resource management. 
This mission has been attained to a considerable degree as Geography graduates have been employed in Departments such as Fisheries, Wildlife, Soil Survey and Research, and indeed institutions like the Environmental Council of Zambia.
