Although it is a young faculty in the Romanian landscape, the Faculty of Geography already has a national recognition, having a sustained activity in all directions of research and education.
In recent years, with the increase in the number of students, the importance of this faculty within the university has also increased. As a result of major changes in higher education in Romania, the department has applied a new policy in implementing new teaching methods and has focused on specialized practice.
Special attention was also paid to the improvement of the didactic and technical base, in order to carry out a performance education and research.
The students’ activity is also continued within some student organizations, which offer complementarity to the didactic process (tourism circle). Thus, this section offers the possibility to know the natural and anthropic tourist resources in Romania, the important tourist objectives discovered by the students being: Danube Delta, Prahova Valley, Carpathian Mountains, Maramureş area, Moldavian monasteries.
In order to facilitate the acquisition of practical knowledge, over time the faculty has been endowed with some specific equipment such as: laboratories of physical geography, cartography, remote sensing and GIS, cabinets of human geography and geography of tourism, experimental weather station.
The multidisciplinary approach of geographical processes and phenomena (geographical, social and economic) offers a complex perspective on the field of study.
