Introduction to Program:

TEP (Theatre Studies, English Studies and Psychology) is a triple major programme offered by the Department of Theatre Studies, English Studies and Psychology. This symbiotic combination helps instil an ensemble spirit and inspires and necessitates a quest for artistic excellence. Each of the majors is carefully tailored to work in tandem with the other two departments. The disciplines foster skills required for multiple career paths and a varied spectrum of Higher Education possibilities. The transformative processes of theatre lead to self-discovery and identity formation. Therefore, Theatre Studies being of socio-political relevance is a burgeoning academic discipline and a viable career choice.

Programme Outcome/Programme Learning Goals/Programme Learning Outcome:

PO1: Academic expertise: Explore, create and experience western theatre through academic and praxis to develop a holistic theatre professional. To give an overview of literature from aesthetic, linguistic, socio-political and cultural contexts. Familiarize students with the discipline of psychology, give them the necessary exposure to develop interest in these disciplines.

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

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

This course is an introduction to the study of basic psychological processes offered to the first-semester undergraduate students of psychology. It is an introductory paper that gives an understanding of the field of psychology, scope, and multiple perspectives and disciplines that provide a holistic picture of human behaviour. Students will learn the key concepts, classic examples, and modern and practical applications of fundamental psychological theories, methods, and tools. Emphasis is on the basic psychological processes of personality, learning, consciousness, motivation and emotion. This course allows them to learn the basics and demonstrate the skills that a student needs to move on to the more specific and in-depth psychology courses that follow. 

Course Outcome

CO1: Explain fundamental concepts, principles, theoretical perspectives, and arguments from across a range of psychology content domains like learning, personality, motivation and emotion to various situations and contexts.

CO2: Critically evaluate the different schools of thought in psychology

CO3: Define the basic biological process that influences behavior

CO4: Analyze methods of scientific inquiry, evidence-based thinking, and critical thinking skills to psychological phenomena and examples of psychological science

Unit-1
Teaching Hours:15
History and Schools of Thought
 

In this unit, we will examine the history of Western psychological theorizing from its beginnings in ancient Greece, through to the schools and perspectives of psychology including Structuralism, Functionalism, Psychodynamic, Biological, Behavioristic, Gestalt, Cognitive, Cross-cultural, Humanistic and Evolutionary. The aim is both to build a familiarity with psychology’s intellectual origins and to foster an awareness of its many false steps, dead-ends, and alternative pathways to gain a better appreciation of the social, cultural, and, above all, psychological influences on the theorizing of psychologists. Students will be able to define psychology and understand what psychologists do and identify the major fields of study and theoretical perspectives within psychology and know their similarities and differences. In the end, students will be ale to gain a better appreciation of why contemporary psychology takes the shape it does, describe the evolution of psychology and the major pioneers in the field, identify the various approaches, fields, and subfields of psychology along with their major concepts and important figures and describe the value of psychology and possible careers paths for those who study psychology

Unit-2
Teaching Hours:15
Biological basis of behaviour
 

Explain the biological perspective of psychology as it applies to the role of the nervous system and endocrine system in regard to behaviour and mental processes. Identify and describe the important structures of these systems. It is an introductory survey of the relationship between human behaviour and brain function. Discuss the interaction between biological factors and experience, methods and issues related to biological advances, develop an understanding of the influence of behaviour, cognition, and the environment on the bodily systems, and develop an appreciation of the neurobiological basis of psychological function and dysfunction. 

Laboratory Demonstration: Biofeedback/ EEG/ Eye-tracking

Unit-3

Learning
 
This unit introduces students to the principles of learning and how those principles can be used to modify human behaviour. Explain the behavioural perspective of psychology and relate classical and operant conditioning concepts to student-generated scenarios. The course emphasizes the application of learning theories and principles. Topics include reinforcement, extinction, punishment, schedules of reinforcement, stimulus discrimination, prompting and fading, stimulus-response chaining, generalization, modelling, rule-governed behaviour, problem-solving, latent learning, observational learning, insight learning, concept learning, general case instruction, and stimulus equivalence.

Unit-4
Teaching Hours:15
Personality
 

This unit is an introduction to the psychological study of human personality, broadly speaking and more specifically in terms of how we may understand individual differences in personality and the personalities of individual persons. Personality psychologists use empirical methods of behavioural and clinical science to understand people in biological, social, and cultural contexts. Students will learn the strengths and weaknesses of the major personality theories, as well as how to assess, research and apply these theories. As much as possible, application to real-life situations will be discussed. Students would be able to identify the various perspectives that are common in the area of personality psychology and critically evaluate each in terms of its explanatory and predictive power, discuss theories and perspectives of personality development: psychoanalytic, humanistic, trait, and social-cognitive, understand classic and current empirical measurement tools and approaches to investigation for personality assessment in psychological and clinical science and develop an understanding of the concept of individual differences with the goal to promote self-reflection and understanding of self and others.

 Laboratory Demonstration: Sentence completion test, NEO-PI, Type A/B

Unit-5
