CBCS Add on Courses


ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES:

University College for Women has to its credit the honour of being accredited by NAAC with the top grade continuously for three cycles. UCW sought autonomous status as early as 1989 and ever since strove to provide holistic education to learners. Starting with the introduction of Professional and Allied Courses like B.Com with Taxation; Computers; and Honours specialization, Food Science Management; Electronics; Bio Technology; Food & Nutrition and Digital Humanities, UCW moved on to introduce short term courses in Entrepreneurship and has successfully implemented CBCS pattern with effect from the Academic Year 2015-2016. This provides learners a wide scope of choice to choose subjects across disciplines for an overall personality development.

Restructuring of the courses to fit into the CBCS pattern has been done, taking into consideration the local needs placed in a national context so as to fulfil global demands. Education is neither just an accumulation of inert facts nor is a narrow approach to subjects; UCW provides application oriented interdisciplinary learning. Therefore, students pursuing graduation degrees in specific courses are encouraged to imbibe knowledge and skills which enable all round personality development.

Two Credit Add-On Modular Courses: Students must choose atleast two courses, one for each Semester I & II from among the following courses apart from the compulsory courses in semesters 3-5.
