PROF. R&D organizations. In pursuance of the above decisions and directives. The revised draft curriculum is being circulated for implementation in the concerned institutions. therefore. 2007 at HEC Regional Center. imperative to update our curricula regularly by introducing the recent developments in the relevant fields of knowledge. Karachi in continuation of its earlier meeting held on November 16-17. 2009 at the HEC Regional Center. The National Curriculum Revision Committee for Environmental Science in a meeting held on April 28-30. revised the curriculum in light of the unified template. the Federal Government vide notification No.50% of the curriculum will consist of discipline specific courses. DR. For the purpose of curriculum revision various committees are constituted at the national level. appointed the University Grants Commission as the competent authority to look after the curriculum revision work beyond class XII at the bachelor level and onwards to all degrees. By looking at the curriculum one can judge the state of intellectual development and the state of progress of the nation.50% will consist of compulsory courses and general courses offered through other departments. SHAIKH Member Academics August 2009 4 . It is. dated December 4th 1976. the Higher Education Commission (HEC) is continually performing curriculum revision in collaboration with universities. The world has turned into a global village. For those social sciences and basic sciences degrees. the curriculum of a subject must be reviewed after every 3 years. It also aimed to give a basic. and 36. broad based knowledge to the students to ensure the quality of education. 63. new ideas and information are pouring in like a stream. According to the decision of the special meeting of ViceChancellor’s Committee. Lahore. degree awarding institutions. respective accreditation councils and stake holders. In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 3 of the Federal Supervision of Curricula Textbooks and Maintenance of Standards of Education Act 1976.

The committee thanked Mr. 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 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. climate change and depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. Then the committee reviewed the existing MS curriculum and proposed some new core courses and elective courses. The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. 4. 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 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. 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.

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

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 areas of specialization may be offered according to the geographic location of the institutions. 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. that: 1. availability of the faculty and other facilities. the Committee agreed on the following principles. The committee proposed the following courses as Core Courses for the degree of Masters in Environmental Science. The nomenclature of the Degree will be “MS in Environmental Science”. The Masters Degree Programme will be of two years duration after four years Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science. 3. 2. 4. 5. The committee also recommended that the pre-requisite for MS Environmental Science must be BS Environmental Science and no other specialization.
