Chairman.

The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. 6. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. The committee thanked Mr. 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. The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and economic development. Then the committee reviewed the existing MS curriculum and proposed some new core courses and elective courses. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. 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 target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. 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. 1. 3. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development.

Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. 5.3. well equipped and highly skilled man power to tackle the growing environmental and developmental problems and changes arising from the transition to a sustainable society. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses. The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities.

skills and behaviour patterns. This can be achieved if Environmental Science is made part of the education embracing both the scientific and social aspects of the human life. in its preliminary meeting. 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.

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. Apply theoretical understanding. as well as a sense of ethical responsibility. This committee. through the use of analytical skill and theoretical knowledge iv. Formulate and implement solutions to problems of sustainable development. professional judgment and skills in mitigation of environmental problems iii. Education is critical for promoting such values and improving people’s capacities to address environmental and developmental issues. The discipline of Environmental Science is perceived as the systematic study of the world around us. Understand the intricate linkages within and between biophysical and socioeconomic systems. Education at all levels especially university education should aim at achieving sustainable development and foster environmentally sound attitudes. and appreciate the principles and requirements that would facilitate the transition to sustainability within these systems. 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. 5.• Propose sustainable solutions for environmental problems. This requires a new frame of mind and new set of values. RATIONALE Finding a sustainable way of life is one of the greatest socially.

UNDER GRADUATE PROGRAMME BS Environmental Science Before drawing the outlines and contents of the courses the committee unanimously agreed on the following principles. The structure of the programmes should be in accordance with international system of higher education in terms of equivalence of credit hours and duration. The degree programmes in Environmental Science should be comprehensive in their coverage of the contents 2. with consensus. In order to support efficient research in the discipline of Environmental Science. Sc. A. 4. To maintain the equivalence of duration of study at international level. The nomenclature for this four-year degree programme will be BS Environmental Science consisting minimum of 124 and Maximum of 136 credit hours including compulsory courses of English. pre-medical and preengineering or equivalent qualification The following courses were identified by the Committee to be included in the curriculum of four-year BS Environmental Science Degree programme. skills oriented courses in information and communication technologies must be included in the degree programmes. Integrating natural sciences.e. 3. The medium of instruction. The 11 . that: 1.. assessment and evaluation will be English for degree programmes in Environmental Science. DEGREE PROGRAMMES Before drawing the structure of the graduate and post-graduate programmes in Environmental Science following principles were agreed by the Committee. 6. social sciences and humanities in a holistic study of the world around us is required to achieve goals. eight semesters in the semester system. 5. the Bachelors degree programme (BS) will be of four years i. Environmental Science is an emerging science as a discipline which is highly inter and multi-disciplinary in nature. Courses from disciplines of social sciences should also be included in the curriculum of Environmental Science along with the courses from disciplines of natural sciences in order to integrate the socio-economic aspects of the environment.

This course is designed to introduce participants to various environmental factors affecting human health. The course contents emphasize on the environmental health core issues of air, land and water pollution; and public and community health. The prevention of morbidity and mortality in human populations through the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of hazards in the environment will be presented using the tools of epidemiology, toxicology, law, and risk assessment and communication techniques.
