Courses and Papers

Foundation Courses: The first two years of the curriculum emphasizes on several foundation building (core) courses (FC) that include language, arts, commerce, science and life, building mathematical ability, culture and civilization and governance and citizenship. These courses would help you in enhancing your communication and analytical skills. You will also be having one value-based course (IMBH– Integrating Mind Body & Heart /CA-Cultural Activities Including NCC, Sports, NSS etc.) per semester throughout the curriculum which shall further help you to reflect upon values and culture.

 Discipline Courses: Moreover the discipline courses (DC-I) will further train you with the basic concepts of a particular discipline. All students pursuing the Bachelor with Honours degree shall study 20 discipline papers. However, if any candidate exits earlier accordingly the number of courses will be fewer. Another set of discipline papers (DC-II), for which you will be allowed to choose at the commencement of the second year, will permit you to opt for papers that complement your learning in the principal discipline course (DC-I). An important point and a special feature to note is that passing all six DC-II courses in one discipline would have an alternate choice for post-graduation in that discipline in addition to their first discipline.

Applied Courses: You will be offered applied courses (AC) in your concerned discipline, aimed at helping you in applying the knowledge as means for capability building. You will be studying five application papers, which will be introduced in the second semester with a course each in second to sixth semester.
