Course programme

Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences

The School of Environmental Sciences was established in the year 1974. The academic programme of the School has been periodically reviewed, revised and updated, keeping in mind the need for sharper focussing, the available expertise at any given time, and the changes desired in curriculum of individual courses or specific programmes.

The M.Phil./Ph.D. programme started since 1975 has also undergone periodic changes in the curriculum. Indeed the School was the first to start M.Sc./M.Phil. programme in Environmental Sciences in the country.

The School has diversified interest in various earth, atmospheric and biological processes. Linkages between Ecological and Social processes give an additional dimension to School's interest, making the work relevant. Therefore, the curriculum has components of disciplinary areas such as physical sciences, earth and atmospheric sciences, environmental biology, and environmental monitoring and management. With such a high level of diverse research interests, over 100 students have so far successfully completed their Ph.D. programme in different aspects of Environmental Sciences. The number of students on the rolls of the School as on 1.9.97 was 119 - M.Phil. /Ph.D.91 and M.Sc.28. In the year under report, a total of 28 students were awarded degrees, M.Sc. 13, M.Phil. 8 and Ph.D .7.
