ABOUT The Department


        Environmental Science today is a growing discipline and has emerged as an important field of study. The Department of Environmental Science, St. Edmund’s College, was established in the year 2006 by the then Principal Bro. E.V. Miranda. The Department was established with the aim of imparting, to the students of the region, awareness and knowledge about the environment, skills to identify the problems associated with it and to foster attitudes and participation in various environmental issues. The department started with two faculty members including Dr. Jasmine T. Sawian. In the year 2007, the Department was approved by the North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong to start an Environmental Science Honours course and became the first college in Meghalaya to offer such a course.

        Besides the conventional mode of teaching via lecture, assignment method, field trips, guest lecturers, etc., the department is also involved in other modern methods of teaching using the latest technology besides screening of documentaries, exposure trips, project work, workshops and seminars all of which will give the student a more in depth understanding of the subject. The department has well-equipped laboratories, departmental library and LCD enabled classrooms. A certificate course in Vermicomposting is also offered to students of the college. The Depatment has consistently produced good results, with a number of students being absorbed in academics, research, government services, industries and others. The Department has been included under the DBT Star college scheme in the year 2017.
