Publisher Description

The University of Haifa's Department of Geography and Environmental Studies was established in 1964. From its inception the department has fostered the connection between research and teaching in the areas of human, cultural and physical geography; in the latter, mainly geomorphology and climatology. Over the years, new faculty have joined the department and broadened its fields of expertise to include environment, tourism, planning and geographical information systems. The current array of formal courses and seminars, enriched by field courses in Israel and abroad, provide undergraduate and graduate students with both the theoretical backgrounds and applied techniques that are relevant for national and international workplace opportunities.
