The association between man and environment is emerging strongly with surfacing of environmental problems as a result of modernization and development. Man is an integral part of natural ecosystems. The coming generations need to know about environmental pollution, resource degradation, population explosion, biodiversity conservation and industrial impacts. With this insight, Department of Environmental Studies, Dayanand Post Graduate College, Hisar was established with a vision of imparting fundamental knowledge of relationship between man and the environment, to undergraduate students of the institute. The department has been conducting the course as per University Grants Commission guidelines since 2004. A total of approximately two thousand students of 1st year (including B.A., B.Sc., B.Com., BBA and BMC) are imparted with knowledge of the subject (environmental problems of regional and global scale) each year. During the period of study, students are usually involved and encouraged with extra-curricular activities like posters and slogans making; and quiz competition related to awareness about the environmental issues.
