Bachelor Degree Programmes (3 years)

The Bachelor of Science Degree programmes aim at preparing students who wish to join the global movement for protecting Earth’s systems and resources. These programmes are offered with an aim to reach out to the large audience of students and youth that are likely to be both decision makers and beneficiaries with regard to Human Development and Sustainable Development in the next generation. Just as the importance of planning in the welfare State permeated people’s consciousness through the educational curriculum, it is hoped that such academic programmes will help integrate Human Development and Sustainable Development into the main stream debate on development as formulated through university textbooks and research. Only when the concept and practice of these two developments mingle with academic debate and research and consequently give rise to schools of interpretation, can it truly be said to have become a field, as distinct from a fad or preoccupation of a few. The programme will have Foundation Courses in the 1st year, Core Courses in the 2nd year and Applied Courses in the 3rd year spread over 6 semesters in three years. There will be multiple teaching methods including interactive lecture sessions, case analysis, group discussions, interaction with experts and practitioners and use of videos, documentaries and films related to the respective Bachelor Degree Programmes. The programmes will be research based and will also have some practical components.
