Examination And Assesments

Theory-based courses have CIAI, II, II and End of Semester Examination and practice-based courses have end of Semester Assessments in both solo and group contexts.

Department Overview:
Music is a universal language that goes beyond physical and geographical boundaries of the world. It brings one closer to oneself and to the lived experiences of others. Music helps communicate something that is difficult to put down in a few words: our first-person perspective of reality. It rises from one?s soul in hope to reach the another. The Music course aspires to create a genuine interest and appreciation for western classical music (voice and piano) among students. Throughout the first year, the Musical Foundations course combines music notation, theory, ear training and sight singing skills. The second year builds on this integrated toolbox by adding practical uses of Harmony (including Counterpoint) across all western tonal styles. Third year then scaffolds a final layer to this core set of skills which contextualise the History of Western Music to discuss the philosophical outlooks that underpin western approaches to music and life up until the present day. Each student will major in either voice or piano over the course of six practical semesters. The course maintains a good balance between theory and practical knowledge; along with numerous opportunities for stage performances. Music as a subject itself goes much beyond just academics, and the programme is structured in a way to be able to contribute to each individual?s life and make a difference through music.
Mission Statement:
Learn. Create. Share. To produce graduates of musical excellence in service to the community: able to perform, lead and learn throughout life.
Introduction to Program:
Nowhere else in the world can the interweaving of language, psychology and western music be found. This combination provides a solid foundation into career paths that value interdisciplinary links already established within the graduate degree holders. Understandings of western culture, history, psychology and philosophy are bridged within all three overlapping disciplines whilst simultaneously developing a solid musical platform from which one can express themselves artistically and creatively. A large pool of customization still remains within the course structure. Students can elect to specialise as a music teacher or choral director / conductor within the music programme. They can elect to study film, short story or teaching from the English programme; and also specialise in French, Hindi, Kannada, Sanskrit or Tamil languages. Literature is an important cultural product of a society or a nation. Hence, the study of literature offers insights into the worldviews of different societies. This course begins with traditional British literature to the present. The course also introduces students to other literatures namely American world, postcolonial and also the Indian literature in translation. The course also introduces students to interdisciplinary studies in culture and gender helping them to gain insights from other disciplines like history, anthropology, sociology etc.

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

Learning Outcome

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 gain a better appreciation of why contemporary psychology takes the shape it does.

  1. Describe the evolution of psychology and the major pioneers in the field
  2. Identify the various approaches, fields, and subfields of psychology along with their major concepts and important figures
  3. Describe the value of psychology and possible careers paths for those who study psychology
