Welcome to the Department of Geography University of the Philippines Diliman

Geography focuses on the study of the Earth as the home of humans. As a holistic discipline, it examines human-environment interactions, spatial processes, and development of places and localities (More on what geography is). Geographical knowledge brings a better grasp of the factors that lead to the transformations of everyday spaces at different scales using techniques such as geographic information systems (GIS) and statistics. See the research interests of faculty members using the People dropdown in the menu. We take an active role in propagating Geography to raise awareness on how daily lives are influenced by human-environment interactions and to empower localities in facing the challenges of an increasingly globalizing world.
