    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.

    AUD caters primarily to the study of the humanities and the social sciences. It aims to bridge academic excellence with concerns of social justice and equity and aspires to make teaching and learning processes liberating undertakings that carry transformative potentials across diverse strata of society. The BA programmes housed in SUS are central to the University’s vision and offer students a unique liberal arts education that acquaints them with diverse approaches to knowledge. It aims to achieve a good balance between the range and depth of the subjects studied. The programmes aim at developing students’ critical awareness of relationship between self and society, and at questioning common sense assumptions of their everyday world. This is done through innovative pedagogies involving theoretical, methodological and transformative aspects of teaching-learning processes.

    The seven programmes in the School offer courses which respond to societal questions at local, national, global levels. These are related to understanding of historical and contemporary perspectives on caste, class, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, language, disability, and the interactions between these factors. Study of these factors orients students towards a nuanced, humanistic and holistic understanding of the local, the national and the global perspectives. The interdisciplinary structure of the School enables the students to credit and audit courses across disciplines, and therefore develop cross-disciplinary perspective to the understanding of society.

    The School not only aims at providing disciplinary and interdisciplinary education to students but at imparting a critical understanding of their own role as local, national and global citizens. The emergence of this understanding is also premised on the way in which the student is envisaged not merely as recipient of knowledge but as an active participant in production of the university itself as a space of emergence of critical understanding.

    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.
