M.Sc. (Postgraduate)
This course provides a base of general Earth science knowledge, whcih would help the student, better understand the natural world of which we are an inseparable part. This course includes four major units as follows: Earth matererials: Earth and the universe; Minerals; Rocks (Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic); Processes that shape the Earth surface: Weathering and Soils; Mass wasting; Surface and ground water; Volcanic Activity; Wind and Deserts; The Evolving Earth: Rock Deformation; Earthquakes; Plate Tectonics; Geologic Time Scale; Fluid spheres: Oceans; Atmosphere 
First Year (Undergraduate)
The course aims at dealing with the principles of GIS, such as : Definitions, development, components, and their theories. Several subjects will be taught such as : database construction which include building of geographical data and their attributes. Also, manipulating database according to symbolizing, charting, tabling, matching, buffering, merging and making successive output.
Third Year (Undergraduate)
The study of some quantitative techniques and their applications in solving geographic problems, such as the central tendency measures, Sampling, and Correlation coefficient . Also. it introduces to the students methodology and the kinds of variables
Second Year (Undergraduate)
This Course pursues the following objectives: - The study the physical geographical landscape of Jordan. - To shed light on the evolution of the Jordan cultural and transit location between Arab countries, as well as between the Far East and Europe. - To analyze landforms of Jordan, climate, water resources as well as the Cultural landscape including the distribution of: population, settlements and economic activity. - To focus on certain environment al problems e.g. water, desertification and population
First Year (Undergraduate)
The course deals with the basic skills used in transferring any theme to thematic map. Therefore several topics will be discussed, such as definitions and designing of general contents or annotation of thematic maps; including their sources and the main cartographic methods ( Qualitative and Quantitative) in representing features or their attributes on maps. Finaly the course will deal with the main problems in applying these methods both in traditional and digital techniques.
Third Year (Undergraduate)
The course dealing with spatial analysis modeling using GIS for spatial organization of socio-economic spaces, environment landscape, using spatial point, patterns, continues and aerial of data.
