Abstract:
The Environmental degradation is the major concern in the world of globalization. Due to rapid increase in human population and non-sustainable developments in every sector, the environmental pollution is increasing day by day. Lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere are getting polluted by human activities beyond the rational limit. So there is an urgent need to increase the level of awareness among human beings to conserve, preserve and nurture environmental resources. Consequently, environmental education should be included in school curriculum as well as in college curriculum right from the beginning. The present study was conducted to study the environmental awareness among post graduate students of Aligarh Muslim University. In the present study a total of 200 student's sample has been taken from different faculties of Aligarh Muslim University. The findings of the study indicated that level of environmental awareness among science students was greater than other faculties' students. The results also reveal that the female students were more aware than male students. The urban students have much more awareness as compared to rural students.
