3. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. In last few centuries. The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities. 6. 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. 4. Then the committee reviewed the existing MS curriculum and proposed some new core courses and elective courses. climate change and depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and economic development. The committee thanked Mr. 2. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. 1. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. Muhammad Tahir Ali Shah and the staff HEC regional centre. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. 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. the world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 5. 3. 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. 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 Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses.

in its preliminary meeting. This requires a new frame of mind and new set of values. This can be achieved if Environmental Science is made part of the education embracing both the scientific and social aspects of the human life. regional and global contexts. through the use of analytical skill and theoretical knowledge iv. Apply theoretical understanding. ii. 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 . Make meaningful contributions to improving legal and administrative structures and processes relevant to sustainable development and environmental management 5. 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. Formulate and implement solutions to problems of sustainable development. 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. economically and environmentally challenges facing humanity today. Education at all levels especially university education should aim at achieving sustainable development and foster environmentally sound attitudes. as well as a sense of ethical responsibility. skills and behaviour patterns. 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. Understand the intricate linkages within and between biophysical and socioeconomic systems. 5. The discipline of Environmental Science is perceived as the systematic study of the world around us. Education is critical for promoting such values and improving people’s capacities to address environmental and developmental issues. RATIONALE Finding a sustainable way of life is one of the greatest socially. the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan appointed a National Curriculum Revision Committee in Environmental Science.• Propose sustainable solutions for environmental problems. and appreciate the principles and requirements that would facilitate the transition to sustainability within these systems. This committee. professional judgment and skills in mitigation of environmental problems iii.

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.

The committee proposed the following courses as Core Courses for the degree of Masters in Environmental Science. availability of the faculty and other facilities. The committee also recommended that the pre-requisite for MS Environmental Science must be BS Environmental Science and no other specialization. The nomenclature of the Degree will be “MS in Environmental Science”. the Committee agreed on the following principles.POST GRADUATE PROGRAMME MS in Environmental Science Regarding MS Degree Programme. that: 1. 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. 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 Masters Degree Programme will be of two years duration after four years Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science. To support the students in their specialized areas of research work.
