Students planning to apply in the Delhi
University (DU) will have more opportunities to look forward to in the upcoming
academic session, 2019-20, as the varsity’s academic council (AC) has decided
to introduce 30 new courses, at both the under graduation and the post
graduation level, in around 20 colleges. The council has also approved to
increase 232 seats in existing courses at two colleges.

The decision was taken by the AC during a meeting last week.
According to AC members, the courses were first passed by the university’s
standing committee for academic affairs in September, last year. “The academic
council has approved to introduce 30 courses at the under graduation and post
graduation level in around 20 DU colleges from the next academic session
2019-20. The courses are presently taught at other colleges in the university.
With this decision, these courses will now be available at more colleges. The
council has also given nod to introduce 10 vocational coursesin
some colleges from the upcoming session,” Hansraj Suman, an AC member, said.

According to the minutes of the AC meeting,
which was held on January 2 and adjourned till January 17, the committee
approved to introduce the following undergraduate courses in these colleges: B.A.
(H) in Bhimrao Ambedkar College; B.A. (H) in Economics in Dayal Singh College
(evening) and Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College; B.A. (H) in Philosophy in Hansraj
College; B.A. (H) in Psychology in Laxmibai College and Bhaskaracharya College;
B.A. (H) in History Dyal Singh College; B.A.(H) in Political Science in Bhimrao
Ambedkar College; B.A. (H) Hindi Journalism and Mass Communication in Jesus and
Mary College, and B. Sc. (H) in environmental science in Vivekananda College
and Indraprastha College for women, among others.

The post graduation courses which have been
approved include M.A. in English in Shri Gurunank Dev College), M. A. in Hindi
in Sri Venkateswara College and Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, and M.Sc. in
operational research at Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies and Keshav
College, among others.

The minutes also stated that the AC has approved
to increase number of seats in some existing courses as well. “The number of
seats in BA (programme) at Hansraj College has been increased from 40 to 200
from the next academic session. Also, the number of seats in BSc program at
Aditi Mahavidalaya has been increased from 55 to 80. The college will also
admit 50 more students in B. Com. (H) from the next academic session,” the
minutes mentioned.

Officials at the university said that with the
increase in availability of courses at more colleges, more opportunities will
be open for students from the upcoming academic session. “Every year we receive
thousands of seats for popular courses like B.A.(H) in English, Economics and
Psychology. But so many students are left behind due to limited seats. With the
availability of these courses at more colleges, more number of students will be
able to enroll,” an official from last year’s admission committee said.
