climate change and depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. 6. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 5. 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 . Then the committee reviewed the existing MS curriculum and proposed some new core courses and elective courses. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable 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 committee thanked Mr. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. 4. 3. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. 1.3. 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. The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities. The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. the world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. 2. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. 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 last few centuries. 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 target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated.

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

3. Sc. A. skills oriented courses in information and communication technologies must be included in the degree programmes. social sciences and humanities in a holistic study of the world around us is required to achieve goals. 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 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.

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.

that: 1. 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. 4. The committee also recommended that the pre-requisite for MS Environmental Science must be BS Environmental Science and no other specialization. 5. 2. availability of the faculty and other facilities. the Committee agreed on the following principles. The nomenclature of the Degree will be “MS in Environmental Science”. 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 committee proposed the following courses as Core Courses for the degree of Masters in Environmental Science. To support the students in their specialized areas of research work.
