4. 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 . 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. 1.3. The committee thanked Mr. 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. 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. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. Muhammad Tahir Ali Shah and the staff HEC regional centre. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. climate change and depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. 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. Then the committee reviewed the existing MS curriculum and proposed some new core courses and elective courses. The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and economic development. In last few centuries. the world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. 5. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. 2. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 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.

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

UNDER GRADUATE PROGRAMME BS Environmental Science Before drawing the outlines and contents of the courses the committee unanimously agreed on the following principles. Environmental Science is an emerging science as a discipline which is highly inter and multi-disciplinary in nature. the Bachelors degree programme (BS) will be of four years i. The 11 . In order to support efficient research in the discipline of Environmental Science. 1. 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. The structure of the programmes should be in accordance with international system of higher education in terms of equivalence of credit hours and duration.e. 5. assessment and evaluation will be English for degree programmes in 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. DEGREE PROGRAMMES Before drawing the structure of the graduate and post-graduate programmes in Environmental Science following principles were agreed by the Committee. Integrating natural sciences. skills oriented courses in information and communication technologies must be included in the degree programmes. The eligibility for admission to Bachelors of Environmental Science degree will be F.

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.POST GRADUATE PROGRAMME MS in Environmental Science Regarding MS Degree Programme. 3. that: 1. The Masters Degree Programme will be of two years duration after four years Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science. the Committee agreed on the following principles. availability of the faculty and other facilities. The areas of specialization may be offered according to the geographic location of the institutions. To support the students in their specialized areas of research work. The nomenclature of the Degree will be “MS in Environmental Science”. The committee also recommended that the pre-requisite for MS Environmental Science must be BS Environmental Science and no other specialization. 4. 5. 2. 50 . 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.
