The world is faced with the challenge of devising innovative development strategies to deal with the complexities of environmental deterioration and economic development. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. 4. 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. Muhammad Tahir Ali Shah and the staff HEC regional centre. The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. 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 . the world has witnessed a rapid but uneven economic development. 5. 6. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. 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 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.3. The committee thanked Mr. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable 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. 1. 3. In last few centuries. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 2. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution.

skills and behaviour patterns.• Propose sustainable solutions for environmental problems. Apply theoretical understanding. regional and global contexts. economically and environmentally challenges facing humanity today. 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. 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. 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 . Education at all levels especially university education should aim at achieving sustainable development and foster environmentally sound attitudes. 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. 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. in its preliminary meeting. professional judgment and skills in mitigation of environmental problems iii. as well as a sense of ethical responsibility. RATIONALE Finding a sustainable way of life is one of the greatest socially. the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan appointed a National Curriculum Revision Committee in Environmental Science. Understand the intricate linkages within and between biophysical and socioeconomic systems. This committee. 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. ii. Make meaningful contributions to improving legal and administrative structures and processes relevant to sustainable development and environmental management 5. 5.

2. UNDER GRADUATE PROGRAMME BS Environmental Science Before drawing the outlines and contents of the courses the committee unanimously agreed on the following principles. 6. Environmental Science is an emerging science as a discipline which is highly inter and multi-disciplinary in nature. 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. Islamic studies and Pakistan studies 3. The degree programmes in Environmental Science should be comprehensive in their coverage of the contents 2. Integrating natural sciences. the Bachelors degree programme (BS) will be of four years i. The structure of the programmes should be in accordance with international system of higher education in terms of equivalence of credit hours and duration. DEGREE PROGRAMMES Before drawing the structure of the graduate and post-graduate programmes in Environmental Science following principles were agreed by the Committee. eight semesters in the semester system. skills oriented courses in information and communication technologies must be included in the degree programmes. 1. 3. To maintain the equivalence of duration of study at international level. 5. In order to support efficient research in the discipline of Environmental Science. assessment and evaluation will be English for degree programmes in Environmental Science. that: 1. The eligibility for admission to Bachelors of Environmental Science degree will be F.. The 11 . Sc. The medium of instruction. A. with consensus.graduate abreast with new developments in Environmental Science and prepared a revised curriculum draft. pre-medical and preengineering or equivalent qualification The following courses were identified by the Committee to be included in the curriculum of four-year BS Environmental Science Degree programme. 4. 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.e. as guiding principles for the development of the programmes. social sciences and humanities in a holistic study of the world around us is required to achieve goals.

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