Delhi University is all set to launch the four-year degree course in July. In the new academic year, students will not have an option of BA/BCom (pass). The new course structure includes 11 foundation courses which are mandatory for all students in the first two years. In addition to these, there are 26 discipline papers spread over eight semesters and five applied courses spread over five semesters with exit options available.

On completion of four years of study, students will get an honours degree. Otherwise, they can take an associate baccalaureate after two years or a baccalaureate after three years. A centralised faculty will be set up by the university to conduct classes for foundation courses. The vice chancellor has already constituted a committee to develop the curriculum for these.

Discipline 1 courses will be followed by applied courses. “These courses will equip students with enough skills so as to find good jobs if they exit half-way,” says Sanjeet Ragi, deputy dean (academics). There is an additional non-credit course on integrating mind, body and heart. Students won’t be given any marks for this but it will be retained on the degree. Cultural activities are also a part of the new structure. Students will be given admission on the basis of marks in the best four subjects.
