Examination And Assesments

Theoretical courses are examined through relevant tasks that ask students to demonstrate their individual, cumulative understandings of the syllabus content taught throughout the semester.

Practical courses are examined through various performance-based tasks that require students to demonstrate various combinations of individual fine-motor skills taught throughout the semester.

Both theoretical and practical tasks are assessed using rubrics that break each task down into their component criteria.

Department Overview:
The Department of Performing Arts was established in 2010 with the vision of providing ?Integrity through Aesthetic performance?. Its mission is to inspire and mentor the birth and sustained growth of artists who, through cultural ethos, will embody respect, humanity and discipline. The primary aim of the programme is not to make students experts in one art form or the other, but introduce them to the possibilities with art and to help them get an integrated sense of art. The department has more than 150 students who are guided by 5 permanent and 2 guest faculty members. The first batch graduated in the year 2013. At present, the department offers three undergraduate and one postgraduate programmes
Mission Statement:
Vision ?Integrity through aesthetic performance? Mission To inspire and mentor the birth and sustained growth of performance artists who, through cultural ethos, will embody respect, humility and discipline.
Introduction to Program:
The Bachelors in Performing Arts is envisioned for students who have a flair for dance, music and theatre and are looking for structured intervention at the UG level. The programme hopes to give a strong platform for our students to develop a passion for the arts, sharpen their artistic skills and broaden their theoretical base. While the focus will be predominantly within the parameters of dance, music and theatre, other art forms would act as subsidiaries under this three-dimensional approach. The primary aim of the programme is not to make students experts in one art form or the other, but introduce them to the possibilities with art and to help them get an integrated sense of art. It is desirable that every students continues to work under an artist/group in one art form or the other outside curriculum, towards long term development. As of now, the Performing Arts papers will function alongside of English and Psychology as a part of a triple-major combination. This combination will hopefully give linguistic, literary and psychological insights to the students. Since there is scope for accommodating only one paper from all the three fields in each of the first two semesters, the second year is conceptualized in a form where the students can choose an area of specialization in one of the three art forms- dance, music or theatre, through the elective option. However, they need to stick on to the same specialized area until the last semester. In the third year, they shall

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)

  

 

Learning Outcome
