All human activity takes place on a geographic stage of great diversity and constant transformation. The Geography Department at Lorestan University has been a center of scholarship about earth’s landscapes and human relationships to the environment. It was formed in 2009 with the admission of undergraduate students leading to B.A. level. Presently the Department of Geographic Sciences consists of two undergraduate majors: Climatology (129 students) and Geomorphology (107 students) and two majors at graduate level: Holy Defense Geography (3 students) and Climatology (23 students) and a major at Ph.D. level in the field of Climatology (12 students). The inquiries encompass a wide range of topics, from the economies and cultures of cities and built landscapes, to tropical climates and the flow of polar ice sheets. We combine rigorous empirical work with deeply conceptual theoretical analyses, always recognizing the importance of both spatial processes and accumulated histories. We use geographic analyses to illuminate the abiding problems of the modern world.
