The Role of Environmental Education Course in Developing Some Environmental Concepts and Attitudes Toward the Environment for a Sample of King Khalid University Students

Auther : Dr. Mohammed S. Al-Shahrani

     The study aimed at identifying the effect of environmental education courses in developing some environmental concepts and attitudes toward the environment for a sample of King Khalid University students. It investigated the relationship between achievement and attitudes toward the environment for the sample of the study. The tools used consisted of an achievement test which addressed the most important environmental concepts that are offered throughout the course, in addition to an attitude scale to measure the students attitudes toward the environment. The tools were both valid and reliable and were administered to the sample of the study (156 students from four different majors-Science, English, Psychology and Social Studies).

     Appropriate statistical analyses were done. Results have revealed a high effect for the course to equip students with environmentally related concepts as well as raising their awareness regarding environmental issues. They also showed that there was a positive significant relationship between achievement in the environmental education course and their attitudes toward the environment; this correlation gets stronger as the course progresses. There were no significant statistical relationships, however, between the scores of the students whose majors are different. The results of the study were discussed and some recommendations were outlined.
