We offer:

  2. A unique four-year dual degree program with Rollins College, one of the top liberal arts colleges in the United States. Students pursuing this liberal arts study option would spend two years at JSLH and the next two years at Rollins College. At the end of their studies, they would receive a B.A. (Hons.) in a Liberal Arts from JSLH and a B.A. from Rollins College in a subject of their choice.
  3. Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons.): The aim of the 4-year BFA (Hons.) programme is to educate visual thinkers, who can critically address this new imagery landscape and the social challenges that it yields. While ensuring the mastery of our students over traditional skills of craftsmanship and image-making, they will be encouraged to approach art with conceptual and theoretical tools.

One postgraduate programme:

  1. The Jindal Fellowship Programme (JFP) is a one-year certificate course that is tailor made for each student’s advancement of their research interests in their specified disciplinary domain. Students study cutting-edge research-centric courses, while being closely mentored by a faculty advisor of their choice.

Vision

An education in the liberal arts and humanities programme at Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities (JSLH) in collaboration with Rollins College, Florida, is the ideal preparation for an intellect in action. JSLH offers a space for the expansion of young minds in a polyvalent education that mixes the classical and the contemporary in a new framework – the first of its kind in India. Our aim is to break down disciplinary boundaries and redefine what it means to study arts and humanities in an international context.

Mission

The mission of JSLH is to establish a beachhead for interdisciplinary learning in India that will produce successful professionals who will lead society out of the morass it finds itself in. JSLH will seek to bring to life for students the underlying commonality which lies buried beneath the illusion of intractable differences. What is needed and what JSLH will promote are the spirit of enquiry, introspection, and critical engagement with the world at large.
