This course deals with methods of multiple statistics such as multiple regression, correlation, sampling and advanced methods of different hypothesis tests in different geographical issues.
3
This course focuses on field research work in geomorphology and using different advanced techniques in processing and analysing the collected field data.
3
This course includes two main parts - theoretical and applied. The theoretical part describes the historical developments of cities and villages, role of geography in studying urban and rural land use. The applied part includes statistical approaches such as community rank and size, gravity law, theory of economic growth of cities and factor analysis of urban environment.
3
This course deals with sources of population studies, and population distribution and factors affecting it. It also deals with population structure and growth and the factors affecting them.
3
This course addresses definitions of GIS, geographical data, automation of maps, and spatial analysis as a basis of modern geography. Also it deals with methods of data input, store, correction, and management. It also includes preparation of a GIS project for each student.
3
This course studies methods of natural and human resources surveying and conservation. It includes the use of thematic maps and aerial photographs. Students are also trained on conducting surveys of soil, agriculture, industry and socio-economic issues of selected study areas.
3
This course deals with studying and analysing a number of selected Palestinian topics such as population, water resources, environment and political geography. Students are also asked to write essays to be discussed in class.
3
This course includes principles of electromagnetic remote sensing and optical and radar systems. It also includes geographical applications using digital satellite imagery using remote sensing softwares such as Envi and ER-Mapper.

This course studies distribution of deserts in the world, reasons of aridity spreading, physical and human characteristics of arid lands such as landforms, flora and fauna, soil and water resources. Also, this course addresses the role of man in environmental adaptation, recent approaches in developing such areas.
3
This course focuses on studying different geographical approaches used in the past and those being used at present. The students are also trained on how to design research works according to adopted approach.
3
The course studies advanced climatic research approaches, especially climatic models. It also addresses applied studies in climate.
3
The course addresses agricultural production at regional and global levels, the study of agricultural systems, agricultural location and agricultural land use.
3
This course consists of an introduction to neo-classical location theory. It includes analyses of various approaches to location theory and studies the evaluation of basic determinants of location decisions, industrial location theory, agricultural and urban rent theory and land uses and central place theory.
3
Industrial zone and factors affect the spatial distribution of industry are studied in this course. Industrial patterns and trends are also studied in the light of future plans.
3
In this course, students are asked to write essays in different fields of geography. These will be discussed in class.
3
This course addresses the importance of regional and urban planning in general and in developing countries in particular. The theories of planning, information systems and laying out regional plans are also considered.
3
This course includes the applied study of geographical topics using computer statistical softwares such as SPSS and SAS. Methods of statistical analysis are also included.
3
This course explores the methods by which we remotely sense what is below surface of the earth. It covers the theoretical information of geophysical exploration methods and the field work techniques (seismic, gravity, magnetic, electrical resistivity and ground penetrating RADAR) that are used to study subsurface environments for applications in geological hazards such as earthquakes, landslides and the contamination of groundwater aquifers.
