The BA Honours Programme in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) can best be described as an immersion in interdisciplinary humanities. It allows students to explore three disciplines/ disciplinary areas of the School in some depth over three years while obtaining the wider benefits of a liberal arts education.
Students admitted to Social Sciences and Humanities complete their core course requirement by choosing four core/ elective courses each from any three disciplines described above. In addition, they can also choose Political Science and Hindi as their disciplines. Apart from the discipline course component, the rest of the graduation rules remain the same as any other Honours programme.
The programme is delivered through a total number of 96 credits over six semesters. In order to receive a BA (Hons) degree in Sociology, these credits must be earned in the following manner:
|Compulsory Foundation Courses|

The teaching method in AUD is interactive and learner centric. The pedagogy comprises lectures, tutorials, lab classes, field work, workshops and seminars.
The School of Undergraduate Studies follows a mandatory attendance policy. Students are expected to attend all learning situations. The penalties for low attendance are applied in the form of ‘grade cuts’ based on a sliding scale of attendance shortfall.
Assessment is continuous, with regular feedback. The aim of continuous assessment is to ensure that the work done during the semester carries more weight than a single end-semester examination.
The medium of instruction at AUD is English. The university provides a range of support systems for English language education through its Centre for English Language Education. Mentoring is an important feature of all programmes in AUD.
