Bravo geography education.

Habib (Teacher of MAN 2 Pati)
Studying at the Department of Geography Education, Faculty of Social Sciences, Semarang State University, I was not only taught about education as a geography teacher but also as a geographer, graduates from the geography education program not only become teachers, but also technicians or consultants. I think the involvement of students in lecturers’ research is also one of the steps to form students’ scientific mindset. I am proud to have been part of the geography department at Unnes.
