After receiving a good response for the recently launched four-year Bachelor of Science (BS) course in science, Bangalore University is going to offer a similar course for commerce students too.
Beginning next academic year, the university will be offering a four-year BS course in commerce, which is meant to be on par with foreign universities. This course will be on the lines of the four-year BS study that is in its second year. "In principle, the decision on the B.Com course has been agreed upon. We are also looking at the BA course, but that will take time," said N Prabhu Dev, vice-chancellor of Bangalore University adding that they will soon be going through the board of studies. "We want to convert all the courses into four-year courses," he added. During the first two years, students will deal with the basic courses while during the next two years; they will have to do dissertation and theses. The course will be based on a multiple-choice credit system. Foreign languages will also be offered as part of the course to equip students with skill sets and ensure that they are globally competent and are able to deal with international situations, Prabhu Dev said. The BS course in arts is yet to gain consent from the academic council. After completing the four-year course, students can gain lateral entry into MS course and continue to do their PhD, if required. "In this case, they can save a year as well," he said. Students will be eligible for the course after completion of 10+2. "With such courses, students will be globally competent, especially when they go abroad," he said. This will be on the lines of the four-year BS course in science started in 2010, for which 100 seats are available. Owing to the good response the course received during last year, there were plans to increase the number of seats. Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni College for Women, KLA College, Kristu Jayanti, CMR College and National College, all from Bangalore, offer this course. "We have called in for application from colleges who would like to offer the course," said M Shankar Reddy, faculty and course coordinator, Bangalore University.
