First-Year Student Views on Geography as a Department and as a Profession

Vedat ŞAHİN

Abstract


Students should be understood properly to give them a qualified geography education. Students studying in the Department of Geography do come from different cities, and their learning capabilities thus differ as well. Moreover, the reasons that students desire a geography education are not the same for all. Similarly, their views on the geography profession are not the same either. This study examines the views of first- year students already studying geography at four universities where the study data were collected, utilizing a Likert- type questionnaire. All analyses were conducted via a SPSS program.
