The Environment and Natural Resources Management (ENRM) programme is a cross-disciplinary Bachelor of Science degree programme in the School of Natural Sciences, University of Zambia (UNZA). An environmental and natural resources management context is achieved in the programme through a curriculum that integrates cross-disciplinarity. Cross-disciplinarity in the curricula is achieved through provision of courses offered in the departments of Geography and Environmental Studies, and Biological Sciences. The programme seeks to enhance the students’ knowledge, understanding and analysis of the conflict in the relationship between society and the environment, or what is termed environmental problems. The programme, further, seeks to expose students to various conceptual and theoretical frameworks on the development of strategies to mitigate the problems. The programme seeks to graduate individuals who cannot only effectively participate in the environmental debate, but more so provide arguments to steer societal change in the direction of sustainable development.
