The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 5. The committee thanked Mr. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. the world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. 1. environmental deterioration and unsustainable 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. 2. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. 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 Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. In last few centuries. The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and 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.
