 Four Year Undergraduate Programme

Structure

The four year undergraduate programme is an integrated programme that includes a combination of courses:

1. Foundation Courses (FC)
These are compulsory multidisciplinary courses. The teaching methodology in these courses is participative and project based with mandatory student presentations in class. Project work is an integral part of these courses and will carry a 50% weightage in evaluation.

The distribution of the Foundation Courses in the first, second, third and fourth semesters is as follows:

Semester-I/II: Group-A

i. Language, Literature and Creativity-I (Hindi/MIL/Sanskrit/ Indian Literature in lieu of MIL)
ii. Information Technology

Semester-III/IV: Group-C

i. Governance and Citizenship

Notes:

1. If a student has studied the Group-A Courses in Semester I, she shall study Group-B Courses in Semester II and vice versa.
2. If a student has studied the Group-C Courses in Semester III, she shall study Group-D Courses in Semester IV and vice versa.



2. Discipline Courses-I (DC-I) (Major Discipline)
Discipline Course-I is the major Discipline Course that the student will study throughout her four years in College. She will be admitted on the basis of the Discipline Course-I she opts for and needs to meet the ‘cut off’ requirement for the Discipline-I Course.

1. Commerce

3. Discipline Courses-II (DC-II) (Minor Discipline)

These courses will be studied in the third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth semesters. Students will choose their Discipline-II Courses only towards the end of Semester II. Due to logistical constraints, there will be a limited number of combinations of Discipline-I and Discipline-II Courses that the College will be able to offer.

4. Applied Courses (AC)
These are skill based courses and provide practical knowledge. Each of these courses is designed to equip students with hands on skills of different kinds so that they can supplement the knowledge they acquire in their Major and Minor Disciplines. These courses stress learning based applicability rather than just theory based learning. The pedagogy is oriented towards an active engagement with goals and tasks, creating a workshop environment.

All students will have to study a compulsory Applied English Language Course along with the Foundation Courses in Semester I/Semester II. The other applied courses will be offered in Semester III, IV, V and VI.

5. Integrating Mind, Body and Heart Courses (IMBH)
This non credit course is a compulsory course for all students in Semester I and Semester II.
