Design your own degree course concept

The entrance test to the 'B.Tech in humanities' course under the Meta-college concept of Delhi University was conducted recently. The course under the 'design your own degree' concept to be implemented by the Cluster Innovation Centre (CIC) is the first study programme to be offered under the Meta-college. A total of 410 students took the exam against the 40 available seats. "While 462 students were allotted roll numbers to take the test, 410 appeared for the test, a rather good start for a new full-time course.

However, unlike expectations that most applicants will be non-collegiate or from the School of Open Learning (SOL), only about a 100 were from these categories," says MM Chaturvedi, programme coordinator, CIC. He further adds to say that a large number of applicants from popular colleges including Hindu, Hansraj, Maitreyi, Miranda and Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), among others, took the exam. According to Chandrachur Singh, faculty, political science, Hindu College, "It is a good start. These are the kinds of courses that we need in this global era. There is a need to make our subjects more industry-oriented as well as to boost the creativity of students."

The course, spread over eight semesters, will offer students five different streams — journalism, education, counselling, historical tourism, and art & design to opt for their specialisations, along with other subjects. Ashim Saxena, a first-year, B. Com (Programme) student of Deshbandhu College, who had applied for the innovation course, says, "Though the test was a bit difficult, I feel the course must be interesting as it is different from the regular pattern of studies. It has come like a breather, a shift from the tried and tested module of study." It is clear, adds Chaturvedi, from the response that students want this freedom to choose their own course. The classes are expected to begin on September 10.
