I'm curious about BS Geography.

Any current majors who might have a say on the course they're taking up?

    I'm interested as well. It's one of those courses that I considered taking. :)

    Coolio, but say, what course did you pursue?
  • Geog isn't exactly a "looked upon" course in Diliman, to be honest. No insight though on the actual curriculum/way of teaching there. I only took up geog1 :)

    For payment reasons/job opportunities, I suppose?

    Sorry if that sounds intrusive. I'd made my choice using the same criteria as basis, btw.

    Haha. That was part of the consideration pero I liked it din naman.

    With geog kasi, medyo mysterious rin siya dito sa atin. There aren't too many geography programs dito sa atin.

    ^ alam ko nag-iisa lang ang Geography dept sa buong Pilipinas: at nasa UPD lang meron nun. :)

    kung career options yung iniisip mo, pwede kang maging meteorologist, urban planner, GIS specialist, at kung anu-ano pa. :lol: pero syempre Geog is quite broad, and to be a licensed meteorologist or urban planner you must take more advanced units as well. masters' degree pa nga ata.

    Aw, yeah. There again goes the downside of taking up a non-specialized bachelor's course.

    You don't have to be so specialized with your undergraduate degree. When you're young, it's better to go for the general route (maraming nagshi-shift out from their respective courses kasi di naman pala nila gusto 'yung kinuha nila) and then specialize later on.
  • gusto ko din to. siguro kapag maluwag na ulit sa buhay kukunin ko to as a second degree. or kung may graduate studies ng teaching geography baka yun yung route na tunguhin ko.

    wala bang Geog major diyan? share naman kayo ng experiences niyo sa Geography.

    You're probably right. I'm actually taking Industrial Pharmacy right now (in UP Manila) but I realized I needed to shift out when I decided that easy money wasn't all I was up for. Now all I need is a... course to shift into ;) whether specific or nonspecific.

    ang alam ko lang na nangyayari sa Geog ay FIELD TRIPs!!! haha Geog1 days :D

    pero may mga naging kaklase from Geog, pero sa PE lang.
    gumagawa ata sila ng mapa/cartographers
    pero as far as i know, they can be urban planners, they can work in PAGASA and Phivolcs, and tourism
