Founded in 1951 yet dated back to 1933 for its orgin, School of Geographical Sciences is one enjoys long history in China and home to many scholars enjoy good reputation at home and abroad. The school has a competent team of scholars. With foundations and grants from the state, provinces and municipalities, its faculty is active players in academic and social applied programs in South China region which is its most dedicated arena.

Much were and still will be contributed to social applied programs in tourism planning and developing, environmental protection, biological diversity and cultural diversity preserve, land-use and territory management, regional and local development and theoretical research as well. Extensive academic exchanges with fellows in Canada, USA, UK, Japan, Australia, Hungarian, Poland, and Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan districts have build sound relationship between them and widened the horizon of scholars in the School of Geographical Sciences.
A number of interesting and practical courses are available for students’ own choice besides compulsory courses. For each undergraduate student, the school offer a range of field surveys and site-teaching both inside and outside Guangdong Province in which it is based: Many of its graduates have go abroad for further study or work in laboratories and universities in developed countries. Here is the cradle of geography teachers and GIS engineers and training base for managerial personnel for the management of natural resources & environment and urban & rural planning. Interested persons are welcome to study here. For more information, please look the following data or contact with us by email. We are looking forward to seeing you study here.
