Department of Geography

About the Department

The department of geography was established in 1961 at the Higher Teachers’ Training Institute (HTTI). The aim was to qualify

teachers of geography for secondary schools. It continued to fulfill the mission even after the affiliation of HTTI to the University of Khartoum in 1974, which became the faculty of education. The department had graduated many teachers of geography who worked inside and outside Sudan and others have worked in governmental positions unrelated to teaching. In addition, distinguished staff members have worked in the department, who adequately participated in curricula design for general education and administrative work at the University of Khartoum and other governmental departments. They have also chiefly participated in scientific research where some have been promoted to the status of a full professor.
