Goa University To Start New Masters Course for Women from 2014

Goa Varsity Starts New Masters Course
The Goa University is all set to start its new Masters course specially meant for Women candidates from the academic year 2014-15 (i.e. next year onwards).

 

The course MA in Women studies is all ready with its content but still postponed to the next year because of no staffs.

GU registrar Vijayendra Kamat said "The Centre for Women's Studies (CWS) was sanctioned for Goa University by the University Grants Commission (UGC) under its earlier plan period. It was expected that eventually, it would be converted into a full-fledged department. We have received some support from the UGC under the 12th plan period, and we have decided to start a women's study programme."

According to the sources, GC's mandate for departments of women's studies requires them to introduce a masters level course in women's studies 'with a full complement of core and optional courses and a dissertation'. The requirement states that the core courses will be in feminist theory and methodology with special reference to their contributions to the general theory and methodology.

The optional courses may cover the range being developed at one of the 60-odd women's studies centres set up under the UGC programme across India, depending upon the competence, interest and thrust of different centres.
