Course programme

The Core Module Syllabus for Environmental Studies includes class room teaching and Field
Work. The syllabus is divided into eight units covering 50 lectures. The first seven units will cover 45
lectures which are class room based to enhance knowledge skills and attitude to environment. Unit eight
is based on field activities which will be covered in five lecture hours and would provide students first
hand knowledge on various local environmental aspects. Field experience is one of the most effective
learning tools for environmental concerns. This moves out of the scope of the text book mode of
teaching into the realm of real learning in the field, where the teacher merely acts as a catalyst to
interpret what the student observes or discovers in his/her own environment. Field studies are as
essential as class work and form an irreplaceable synergistic tool in the entire learning process.
Course material provided by UGC for class teaching and field activities be utilized.
