However, not all students will have to take the four-year course.
Students can opt for a two-year associate baccalaureate degree or a three-year baccalaureate degree. Only those working towards an honours degree will have to take the four-year course.
The new proposal will also allow interdisciplinary work. For example, a student of Chemistry honours will be allowed to opt for political science as a minor discipline. Extra-curricular activities and sports have also been made a part of the curriculum.
The proposal will be discussed in the executive council on Wednesday, where it is expected to be passed without much difficulty.
