The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities.3. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses. 2. 4. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. 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. 5. 6. The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. 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 . 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. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. 3. In last few centuries. Muhammad Tahir Ali Shah and the staff HEC regional centre. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 1. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. The committee thanked Mr. 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 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 committee. 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. 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. 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. as well as a sense of ethical responsibility.• Propose sustainable solutions for environmental problems. 5. Understand the intricate linkages within and between biophysical and socioeconomic systems. Make meaningful contributions to improving legal and administrative structures and processes relevant to sustainable development and environmental management 5. RATIONALE Finding a sustainable way of life is one of the greatest socially. professional judgment and skills in mitigation of environmental problems iii. ii. Formulate and implement solutions to problems of sustainable development. 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. skills and behaviour patterns. and appreciate the principles and requirements that would facilitate the transition to sustainability within these systems. regional and global contexts. economically and environmentally challenges facing humanity today. through the use of analytical skill and theoretical knowledge iv. This requires a new frame of mind and new set of values. in its preliminary meeting.

Environmental Science is an emerging science as a discipline which is highly inter and multi-disciplinary in nature. 4. UNDER GRADUATE PROGRAMME BS Environmental Science Before drawing the outlines and contents of the courses the committee unanimously agreed on the following principles. 5. To maintain the equivalence of duration of study at international level. Islamic studies and Pakistan studies 3. 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. that: 1.

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 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. The nomenclature of the Degree will be “MS in Environmental Science”. 5.POST GRADUATE PROGRAMME MS in Environmental Science Regarding MS Degree Programme. 3. 2. The committee also recommended that the pre-requisite for MS Environmental Science must be BS Environmental Science and no other specialization. 50 . The committee proposed the following courses as Core Courses for the degree of Masters in Environmental Science. that: 1. availability of the faculty and other facilities. 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 areas of specialization may be offered according to the geographic location of the institutions. 4. To support the students in their specialized areas of research work. 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.
