The Department of Geography is the jewel in the lustrous crown of Govt. Postgraduate College Asghar Mall. Rawalpindi. On entering the Department, the newcomer might find it a trifle dark, a bit dingy. Fret not dear students for in these corridors history has been written and rewritten. The Department of Geography has embellished this College with no less than 21 gold medals won by our postgraduate students. Besides these, scores of other positions have been pocketed. These trophies and positions are a testament to the serious diligence and assiduity of our students and equally strenuous efforts of the members of the teaching faculty.And what a faculty we have had!!! It is a “Who’s Who” of great Professors: Dr. Kaniz Fatima Yousaf, Dr. Zafar Ahmed Khan, Prof. Rathore, Prof. Ghazanfar Abbas Naqvi, Prof. Syed Abbas Naqvi, Prof. Inam-ullah-Khan, Prof. Irshad Ghalib, Prof. Raja Muhammed Afzal, Dr. Arif Mahmud and our present Head of The Department Prof. Noveed Imran. Remember students that these are great names from the erstwhile years. The present team of teachers in The Department is equally competent and more qualified with Ph.D and M.Phil degrees and will be ever-present for the guidance of their students.The Department is regularly updated in all regards and all kinds of academic and research paraphernalia ranging; from maps, laboratory equipment and a computer lab, is available. So if you want to do your BS and you want to do it with Geography as your core subject then climb aboard and be ready for an experience that will be delightful and frustrating at the same time. But believe that it will leave you more knowledgeable as students and better human beings.The BS Geography is a four year programme, spanning a schedule of eight semesters and the students will indulge themselves in 142 hours of classroom education and many more hours of study at home. During these 4 years our boys and girls will study Geography from its rudimentary principles to the most modern trends. We will take our students on an odyssey to the study of Mother Nature, the solar system, the galaxies and return. We will delve into the remotest recesses of the earth and be back by pack-up time. There will be extensive laboratory work, map study and much more. Dear parents and students, at Govt. Postgraduate College Asghar Mall. Rawalpindi, we are fully cognizant of the fact that those who do not progress must regress. This understanding spurs us on; it gives us the wings to face the newer challenges of this dynamic world. Whatever these challenges demand from us we are ready to confront them, with the hope that we shall present Pakistan with a ‘lot’ of youngsters who will have the knowledge, the ability, the courage and the desire to make “their Pakistan everyone’s Pakistan “ and have the belief that “Geographers Make a Difference.”
