Then the committee reviewed the existing MS curriculum and proposed some new core courses and elective courses. 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 . 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. 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 world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. 1. climate change and depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. In last few centuries. 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. 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. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and economic development. 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. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. 3. 6. The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. 5.3. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. The committee thanked Mr. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development.

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

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.
