History of the Department 
Admitting 35 students for the BA program of Teaching Geography as its first round of students, the department of Geography of RU was established in 1993 to accommodate the needs of Kermanshah province and western regions of Iran for experts in Geography, especially those as school Geography teachers. After two years and with changes in the staff recruitment policies in the Ministry of Education as well as the dire need of Kermanshah province for Land-use Planning along with the existence of environmental threats, this department launched the BSc program in Pure Geography-Geomorphology in 1995 and Climatology (evening courses) subsequently in 1996. The graduate programs of the department began to form by MSc in Geomorphology in 1997, leading up to the establishment of MSc programs in Climatology in the subsequent year. The department, then, began to offer MSc programs in Geography-Rural Planning in 2008. The doctorate's programs of Geomorphology and Climatology were first offered in 2011.
