Physical Geography is the Earth's natural features study, blending environmental patterns and processes that shape our world. It covers a vast terrain from mountain formations, river systems, climate zones, to vegetation patterns. Students investigate the Earth's surface, learning about geomorphology, hydrology, biogeography, and meteorology. This field emphasizes understanding how natural environments operate and change over time. Through fieldwork and geographic information systems (GIS), students analyze landscapes and predict environmental changes. Graduates often pursue careers in environmental management, urban planning, conservation, or education, applying their knowledge to address environmental challenges and contribute to sustainable development.
