This department aims at imparting knowledge to undergraduates from all study areas to help them understand and appreciate various concepts and issues about environment at local, regional and global levels. Case studies formed the basic pedagogical tool of delivery for this course. Inter‐disciplinarily is the main focus of teaching and learning strategies. The course content and suggested readings draw heavily from ideas developed through interdisciplinary works, especially as the assessment includes a compulsory project to be done by every student.
In Environmental Science the students are required to attend not less than 68% of the lectures during each semester in order to enable them to appear for university examinations.
A continuous process of internal assessment takes place during each semester. The assessing procedures usually include written assignments, projects, house exam and presentations. Final examinations are held in the month of November and May.
It is mandatory for a student to secure minimum 40% marks in each theory paper during final examinations, 40% in the internal assessment for each semester, to pass the examination.
