How can i be a professor of geography
Must say, a very different and a unique career choice.
As such being a Geography teacher, you must yourself have a good base of the environment, climate, regional boundaries and its effects on habitats, cultural differences and its impact, global warming and its effects etc.At the same time, you must be able to merge both theory as well as practicals. So not only teaching students, but taking them out on a tour for practical experience is a must.In short you too must be interested in exploring.
Since Geography is a very practical subject, the more practically taught the better students can grasp.
For this purpose, firstly you need to major in Geography itself, followed by a masters degree either in Geology or Applied geography.
Thereafter if you are interested in teaching in schools, then you would have to clear the B.Ed exam.And if in college, then you would have to clear the NET /SET exams.But please note that for becoming a college lecturer, and being eligible for NET / SET, you require a minimum of 3 years of work experience as an associate professor.So here a masters degree is a must, for getting a job in the colleges.
Hope this helps you in your career choice.
Wish you good luck.........
Geography is an interesting field and you can become a professor by primarily getting a masters degree in geography. After getting the masters degree, it is strongly advised that you appear for SET / NET exam of UGC. NET / SET of UGC is minimum eligibility for becoming a lecturer / assistant professor in a college (under or post graduate).
Ultimately to have your career as a professor secure and stable and growing, a PhD in your subject is highly recommended.
