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

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 . This requires a new frame of mind and new set of values. This committee. 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. Apply theoretical understanding. skills and behaviour patterns. in its preliminary meeting. and appreciate the principles and requirements that would facilitate the transition to sustainability within these systems. the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan appointed a National Curriculum Revision Committee in Environmental Science. 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. 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. through the use of analytical skill and theoretical knowledge iv. 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. Education at all levels especially university education should aim at achieving sustainable development and foster environmentally sound attitudes. 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. as well as a sense of ethical responsibility. 5. Education is critical for promoting such values and improving people’s capacities to address environmental and developmental issues. Formulate and implement solutions to problems of sustainable development. RATIONALE Finding a sustainable way of life is one of the greatest socially. ii. The discipline of Environmental Science is perceived as the systematic study of the world around us.• Propose sustainable solutions for environmental problems. professional judgment and skills in mitigation of environmental problems iii. economically and environmentally challenges facing humanity today.

The eligibility for admission to Bachelors of Environmental Science degree will be F. eight semesters in the semester system. UNDER GRADUATE PROGRAMME BS Environmental Science Before drawing the outlines and contents of the courses the committee unanimously agreed on the following principles.. 2. Integrating natural sciences. social sciences and humanities in a holistic study of the world around us is required to achieve goals. that: 1. The degree programmes in Environmental Science should be comprehensive in their coverage of the contents 2. Islamic studies and Pakistan studies 3. A. Environmental Science is an emerging science as a discipline which is highly inter and multi-disciplinary in nature. as guiding principles for the development of the programmes.graduate abreast with new developments in Environmental Science and prepared a revised curriculum draft. Sc. the Bachelors degree programme (BS) will be of four years i.e. skills oriented courses in information and communication technologies must be included in the degree programmes. assessment and evaluation will be English for degree programmes in Environmental Science. with consensus. 4. 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 11 . 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. 5. 3. To maintain the equivalence of duration of study at international level. 1. In order to support efficient research in the discipline of Environmental Science. 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. The medium of instruction. 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.
