Muhammad Tahir Ali Shah and the staff HEC regional centre. In last few centuries. The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. the world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. Environmental Science includes programmes with multidisciplinary scope in which the graduates will learn to address the challenges of maintenance of environmental integrity for sustainable development in relation to human activities. 3. The Environmental matters are at the center of the political and economic areas and at the top of the developmental agenda of every country in the world. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. Teaching Objectives The teaching objectives of the degree programmes in Environmental Science are to enable its graduates with following key skills: • Learn how to analyze and assess environmental problems • Carry out independent scientific and technical research on environmental issues 9 . The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. The committee thanked Mr. 6. 5. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses. 4. 1. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and economic development. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 2.
This requires a new frame of mind and new set of values. as well as a sense of ethical responsibility. Formulate and implement solutions to problems of sustainable development.• Propose sustainable solutions for environmental problems. professional judgment and skills in mitigation of environmental problems iii. in its preliminary meeting. Learning Objectives The degree programs are expected to equip the graduates with an ability to understand the linkages between various bio-physical and socio-economic components of environment and with an expertise to: i. the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan appointed a National Curriculum Revision Committee in Environmental Science. discussed the structure and composition of the existing graduate and post graduate degree programmes in the discipline of Environmental Science and suggested appropriate changes to keep the 10 . ii. 5. This committee. Apply theoretical understanding. The development of interdisciplinary curriculum is one way of developing capacity in Environmental Science for the achievement of ultimate goals of sustainable development Keeping in view the above objectives in the local. Understand the intricate linkages within and between biophysical and socioeconomic systems. RATIONALE Finding a sustainable way of life is one of the greatest socially. Make meaningful contributions to improving legal and administrative structures and processes relevant to sustainable development and environmental management 5. through the use of analytical skill and theoretical knowledge iv. Education at all levels especially university education should aim at achieving sustainable development and foster environmentally sound attitudes. skills and behaviour patterns. economically and environmentally challenges facing humanity today. regional and global contexts. Education is critical for promoting such values and improving people’s capacities to address environmental and developmental issues. This can be achieved if Environmental Science is made part of the education embracing both the scientific and social aspects of the human life. our proper place in it and how it can deal with the issues of socio-economic development on the basis of the principles derived from various disciplines of natural sciences. and appreciate the principles and requirements that would facilitate the transition to sustainability within these systems. The discipline of Environmental Science is perceived as the systematic study of the world around us.

The committee also recommended that the pre-requisite for MS Environmental Science must be BS Environmental Science and no other specialization. 5. 2. it was suggested that they should opt for courses of at least 12 credit hours from the list of elective subjects in consultation with the supervisor. the Committee agreed on the following principles. The Masters Degree Programme will be of two years duration after four years Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science. 4. 3. availability of the faculty and other facilities. 50 . To support the students in their specialized areas of research work. The areas of specialization may be offered according to the geographic location of the institutions. The Masters degree will be based on course work of 24 credit hours along with a mandatory research thesis of 6 credit hours as per HEC policy guidelines. that: 1. The committee proposed the following courses as Core Courses for the degree of Masters in Environmental Science.POST GRADUATE PROGRAMME MS in Environmental Science Regarding MS Degree Programme.
