Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities is India’s first transnational humanities school. Its innovative pedagogy in the BA Honours Liberal Arts and Humanities programme focuses on a strong interdisciplinary foundation in the arts, social sciences and humanities subjects, with specialisations in specific areas.
The study of liberal arts inspires the cultivation of the whole person through rigorous reading and writing, along with active experiential learning inside and outside the classroom, in an atmosphere of academic and intellectual freedom, a close faculty-student engagement and small classes. Liberal Arts students graduate with the knowledge, a flexible range of skills, aptitudes, and a life-long curiosity and love of learning.
Over the first two years of the Bachelors of Arts degree, students train in the foundational aspects of the liberal arts through core courses in humanities and social sciences. They also study electives at JSLH and across the 10 different schools at JGU. Liberal Arts students do one-month internships between every semester. In the final year of the programme they choose a major – one subject – as an area for concentrated study and they write a thesis.
