Course Objectives/Course Description

 

The Additional English course is offered as a second language course and seeks to introduce the students to the nuances of English literature in its varied forms and genres. The students who choose Additional English are generally proficient in the English language. Hence, instead of focusing on introducing them to language, challenging texts in terms of ideas, form, and technique are chosen. Additional English as a course is designed for students in place of a regional language. Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), foreign nationals and students who have not taken Hindi, Kannada, Tamil or French at the Plus 2 or Class XII levels are eligible to choose Additional English. The course is taught for students from different streams, namely, BA, BSc, BCom, and BBA in the first year and for BA, BSc and BCom (Regular) in the second year.

The first year syllabus is an attempt by the Department of English, Christ University to recognize and bring together the polyphonic Indian and Indian sub-continental voices in English in English translation for the Additional English students of the first year. This effort aims to familiarize the students with regional literatures in translation, Indian Writing in English (IWE) and literatures from Pakistan, Nepal and Srilanka, thereby, enabling the students to learn more about Indian culture and ethos through writings from different regions of the country. We have tried to represent in some way or the other the corners of India and the Indian sub-continent in this microcosmic world of short stories, poems and essays

 

There is a prescribed text bookfor the first year students, compiled by the Department of English, Christ University and intended for private circulation.

The first semester has a variety of writing from India, Pakistan and Nepal. The various essays, short stories and poems deal with various socio-economic, cultural and political issues that are relevant to modern day India and the Indian sub-continent and will enable students to comprehend issues of identity-politics, caste, religion, class, and gender. All of the selections either in the manner of their writing, the themes they deal with or the ideologies that govern them are contemporary in relevance and sensibility, whether written by contemporary writers or earlier writers. An important addition to this syllabus is the preponderance of North-Eastern writing which was hitherto not well represented. Excerpts from interviews, autobiographical writings, sports and city narratives are added to this section to introduce students to the varied genres of literature.

The objectives of this course are

to expose students to the rich literary and cultural diversity of  Indian literatures

to sensitise students on the social, political, historical and cultural ethos that has shaped the nation- INDIA

to enable to grasp and appreciate the variety and abundance of Indian writing, of which this compilation is just a passing glance

to learn and appreciate India through association of ideas in the texts and the external contexts (BhashaUtsav will be an intrinsic help in this endeavour)

  

 

Course Outcome

CO1 CO 2: Understand the cultural, social, religious and ethnic diversities of India they will be able to be analytical and critical of the pluralistic society they live in through the activities and assignments conducted be aware of the dynamics of gender, identity, communalism and politics of this vast nation through its literature.

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

‌ ‌The interdisciplinary field of Decision Science seeks to understand and improve the judgment and decision making of individuals, groups, and organizations. The major emphasizes basic skills and concepts that enhance students’ ability to understand and improve the decisions that they and others face. The course also covers the Art of Problem-Solving framework and its subcomponents – muPDNA and muUniverse. It also looks to enhance the students’ knowledge on businesses and how they work, what are the basic steps to be taken to chart out the first steps in decision making

 

Course Objectives:

The objective of the course is:

 

  1. Understand why simply solving problems is not enough and why a more elaborate art of problem solving is in order 

  2. Understand how solving specific problems and the art of problem solving can co-exist harmoniously in the larger realm of problem solving 

  3. Understand the tenets of the Art of Problem-Solving framework 

  4. Understand the frameworks to analyse an industry vertical

  5. Perceive another person’s thoughts, fears and concerns, and motivations and appreciate the role of a third person’s role in decision making

Course Outcome

CO1: Define the first steps towards design thinking with the Mu Sigma framework of Art of Problem Solving (AoPS)

CO2: Interpret how to break down a problem into its smallest segments

CO3: Identify how to represent the complexity of a problem

CO4: Examine the working of an industry, its businesses, marketing, and value proposition

CO5: Perceive another person?s thoughts, fears, concerns, motivations & examine the role of a third person in decision making and understand how to map out an industry and the structure of an organization
