About

The Faculty of Geography conducts research and courses on environmental systems, sustainable resource management, cultural studies, spatial economics, cartography, geoinformatics and remote sensing, among other areas of focus.

Nowadays the MSU Faculty of Geography has the world’s largest educational, scientific and student community of geographers. More than 1200 BSc and MSc students and approximately 200 PhD students study in 15 Departments of the Faculty every year. There is a large number of students from China, Iran, France, Germany and other countries, who also study geography here.  About 800 employees, including 100 professors/Doctors of Science and 280 Candidates of Science, work in the Faculty. The Faculty of Geography has its own publishing facilities and a photo laboratory.

The Faculty's Map Library is a major depository of Russian and Soviet topographic and thematic maps (over 300,000 sheets). Geography Reading Hall, which is a part of the University Library, provides immediate access to over 200,000 titles of books, journals and atlases. Since 1946 the Faculty publishes a bi-monthly scientific magazine «Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta. Geografia» [Moscow University Herald. Geography]. The Earth Science Museum of the Moscow University plays an important role in the training of geographers and in research activities, as well as the Faculty's Meteorological Observatory.
