JNU to offer courses in Film and Television, Art History and Theatre

Jawaharlal Nehru University is all set to introduce three new programmes in Masters in film and television, art history and theatre from the upcoming academic session.

"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," said JNU's Vice-Chancellor SK Sopory.

JNU to introduce courses in MA programmes

 

In a recent meeting of the Academic Council (AC), the proposal to introduce the programmes were given nod. "The Board of Studies of the School of Arts and Aesthetics had recommended for introduction of the three courses. The proposal was mooted in July and discussed and approved by the board before placing the same before the council," Mr Sopory said.

"The preamble as well as the courses to be taught and credit requirements for the three programmes have been worked out," he added. The AC, which is the decision-making body of the university, had in the meeting also taken note of a proposal to open 'School of Indian Languages' which will offer Masters programmes and research courses in Hindi, Urdu, Kannada, Tamil, Marathi, Assamese, Bengali and Odia languages.

The proposal has now been forwarded to various departments of the university and the matter will be placed before the AC after their feedback has been received. The AC, however, rejected a proposal for introduction of short-term courses in 'Indian Culture' and 'Yoga' for "propagating spiritual and mythological traditions and establishing Indian values in the world".
