Department of Geography

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

 The Department of Geography is one of the pioneers established in the Faculty of Humanities, Management and Social Sciences at inception of Federal University, Kashere during the 2011/2012 session along with other departments. The Department of Geography is therefore one of the foundation departments of the university in 2011 when it took off.  It was given the mandate to run the B.Sc Geography degree programme. It was initially headed by an overseer, Mall. Ahmad Abdullahi and later, specifically August, 2014, Dr. Adam Modu Abbas was appointed as the first substantive Head of Department.

The first set of the students were admitted into 100 level in the 2011/2012   academic session. During the first session (2011/2012), a total of 20 students were enrolled and the number increased steadily in the subsequent sessions   as shown in Table 1. The number of staff has also increased both in quantity and quality because at inception, the department had only four academic staff with the maximum qualification of MSc degree. It now has a total number of 17, out of which six are on study fellowship and four are visiting lecturers. The staff/student ratio is 1:8. Eight (8) of the staff members are PhD holders.

Staff and students relation is friendly and undergraduate run the socially and academically active National Association of Geography Students (NAGS) FUK Chapter.
