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

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

the Bachelors degree programme (BS) will be of four years i. Integrating natural sciences. The medium of instruction.e.

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