Program Details

With a substantial number of courses drawn from a single discipline, and a few interdisciplinary and skill-based elective courses, the Bachelors Honours programmes are designed to give an in-depth knowledge in a discipline while allowing for exposure to subjects beyond the discipline. To earn a BA (Honours) Degree in a Discipline, a learner has to complete courses worth 148 credits in minimum six semesters (three years). The Honours programmes have a mix of following categories of courses:

a) Core Courses (CC)
b) Discipline Specific Electives (DSE)
c) Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC)
d) Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC)
e) Generic Electives (GE)

The University follows the credit system for offering all its programmes. One credit is equal to 30 hours of learners' study time. The study load of the Honours programmes vary from semester to semester. Students have to complete 22 credits each in first and second semesters; 28 credits each in third and fourth semesters; and 24 credits each in fifth and sixth semesters.
