The Aim The principal aim of graduate and post-graduate level degree programs in the discipline of Environmental Science is to train and develop. 6. This is the outcome of a rising global concern about the protection of our environment. comprehensive approach involving social and technological changes in all sectors of human life and its environment. The Scope Being an interdisciplinary field of knowledge. 5. 2. The unsustainable economic development has resulted in disastrous environmental crises such as environmental pollution. environmental deterioration and unsustainable economic development. climate change and depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. The target of sustainable development can only be achieved through an integrated.3. a harmonious collaboration between human development efforts and environment concerns are urgently needed to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable development. 1. 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. 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. The committee thanked Mr. Karachi for providing logistic facilities to the participants. 4. 3. The committee expressed its concern that there was no participation from the major universities. 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. These groups also proposed contents/reading materials for newly introduced courses. Muhammad Tahir Ali Shah and the staff HEC regional centre. In order to cope with the challenges of increasing population. 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 .

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

DEGREE PROGRAMMES Before drawing the structure of the graduate and post-graduate programmes in Environmental Science following principles were agreed by the Committee.e. Sc. the Bachelors degree programme (BS) will be of four years i. In order to support efficient research in the discipline of Environmental Science. Environmental Science is an emerging science as a discipline which is highly inter and multi-disciplinary in nature. 1. with consensus. eight semesters in the semester system. as guiding principles for the development of the programmes. 6. 2.graduate abreast with new developments in Environmental Science and prepared a revised curriculum draft.

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.
