The prospective candidates looking to enrol themselves for a Master’s degree at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) will now have three new programmes to choose from the next academic session. The three new MA courses are in the field of film and television, art history and theatre.
SK Sopory, Vice-Chancellor JNU, made the announcement after the University’s Academic Council cleared the introduction of the new courses.
“The University will be offering three new MA programmes from the next academic session. The courses will be MA in Art History and Visual Studies; MA in Film, Television and New Media Studies; and MA in Theatre and Performance Studies,” Sopory said.
The Vice Chancellor said the proposal had come from the Board of Studies of the School of Arts and Aesthetics in July and the preamble as well as the courses to be taught and credit requirements for the three programmes have been worked out. JNU had recently proposed a course in Indian culture and yoga as well. There was a proposal to introduce three short-term courses in yoga, vedas and jatakas.
