PSO1: Role of Humans on the Planet - An understanding and acknowledgment of the threats that endanger the earth’s natural systems. This helps in further realization of the significance of anthropogenic causes of many of the disasters and threats that puts life on this planet on the edge. Enabling the students to understand that man and his ingenuity has given rise to resource and its utilization; which has sprung from man’s need for a better life.

PSO2: Scientific and Critical Thinking - – Development of knowledge, skills and holistic understanding of the discipline among students. Encouragement of scientific mode of thinking and scientific method of enquiry in students. This goal is achieved through the regular field excursions conducted by the Department to various parts of India extensively and the writing of a report/thesis on it.

PSO3: Interdisciplinary Research Skills Ability to undertake research in interdisciplinary studies and problems or issues beyond the realm of what strictly comes under the purview of geography. This is possible because of the varied nature of the curriculum that encompasses the study and analyses of concepts of sub-disciplines and allied disciplines of Geology, Seismology, Pedology, Hydrology, Environmental Studies, Disaster Management, Resource Management and Conservation, Regional Planning and Development Studies etc.
