Welcome to the Department of Geography

Welcome to the Department of Geography at Tullamore College, where we aim to provide a high quality, innovative programme of teaching and learning.

The geography programme at Tullamore College focuses largely on Physical, Regional, Human and Economic geography and is taught through a combination of theory classes, fieldwork and practical classes. Emphasis is placed on the development of a range of geographical skills.

As the historical geographer Felix Driver has emphasised,
 “Geography is a subject which has a reputation for being down to earth; its focus is on the real world, its landscapes and the way it is used”
