The Department of Environmental Science (initially the Department of Environmental Studies), Shillong College was established in the year 2009. During its initial years, the Department solely catered to the need of under graduate students of all streams by teaching the compulsory subject Environmental Studies as directed by the Honourable Supreme Court. Later, in view of the varying environmental issues and problems prevalent in today's world, the vast scope of the subject, its limited representation in the region and the keen interest of the students, an honours programme in the subject was offered from the academic session 2017. The Department will continue to strive for excellence and contribute to the healthy and positive growth of the academic environment not only in the college, but in society and the nation as a whole.
