The Geographic Education does not just perform static learning of reading the book and studying. The homeland exploratory small group meeting called 'the Sky, Land and Human' utilizing the characteristics of the department was created for the self-learning of the students in 1986 and periodically four times a year, a national survey is conducted to study the national humanities and natural geographical landscapes.
