Pedagogy

Jindal School of Liberal Arts & Humanities, as a leading institution for liberal arts education in India, incorporates a capacious variety of arts and humanities subjects as well as foundational Indian teachings in a unique BA honours degree. In the form of a core-elective pairing, students will develop the ability to formulate and test arguments. They will develop reflective thinking habits and interdisciplinary knowledge beyond any one set of skills.

 

In the initial semesters of BA programme, students will engage in the core curriculum of the liberal arts and humanities and their diverse relations and applications. In addition to continuing the core humanities courses, students will major in a concentration of their preferred choice.

 

Our liberal arts student will mix analytical concentration, self-reflective judgment, expressive imagination, tenacity, and fearlessness in the face of intellectual risk. The JSLH faculty is ambitious on your behalf: they seek to challenge you, guide you, and above all support you in your journey towards self-actualisation and knowledge formation.

 

Liberal arts education at JSLH is globally-informed and interdisciplinary and the students we seek to produce will be nourished by this combination of domestic and international study, capable of availing a plethora of job opportunities for a liberal arts degree in India and abroad.

 

We draw on the realities of historical inheritance as a tool to understand the complexity of a mutable present. The implementation of interdisciplinary strategies is required for multi-faceted global problems.

 

Students will have an opportunity to choose multidisciplinary electives from various schools within the university. Thus, by taking from the widest purview of humanities subjects and beyond, we link past and present in a creative dialogue of evolving evaluative applicability.

 

The result of this pioneering global liberal arts education will be an analytical, scholarly, and imaginative individual nurtured in the habits of democratic citizenship.
