    Eligibility

    The candidates who have passed the class XII or an equivalent examination from a recognised board are eligible to apply.

    The BA in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in Karampura Campus is conceived as an innovative programme offered along with three other BA programmes in the campus, i.e. BA in Law and Politics, BA in Global Studies, and BA in Sustainable Urbanism. The BA-SSH programme is structured and complemented by the orientation of the other three BA programmes that seek to craft their own respective niche through an interdisciplinary route. We are then looking at the SSH programme as the site where a critical blending of the thrust of the three BA programmes – Law and Politics, Urbanism and Globality - can be envisioned.

    The programme takes cognizance of the diverse interests and needs of the students pursuing undergraduate education. Through creative designing of courses, pedagogical models, and programme structure, the SSH programme would introduce students to new learning paradigm while facilitating certain continuity with their school education. These twin aspirations are sought to be inculcated by way of imparting training in skill-based abilities and knowledge-oriented components. Students of SSH aiming to pursue MA programmes at AUD and other institutions or seeking employment opportunities after the completion of their degree will be accordingly equipped with the necessary knowledge and skill capacity to compete in the charted fields.
