Know How to Choose Courses for B.A.

B.A. (Major)

If you want to go for indepth studies of one particular discipline to obtain B.A. Major or you want to pursue the same discipline for your postgraduate studies you can select courses worth 48 credits from that discipline. In B.A., option to do Major is available in English, Hindi, Urdu, Economics, History, Political Science, Public Administration, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy and Mathematics.

B.A. (General)

If you do not intend to specialise in one discipline you can choose courses from various disciplines. Here you will have to be careful. If you choose from many disciplines you might end up doing one course from each discipline which might not give you enough knowledge in any of the disciplines. You should try to select courses of your choice from 2 or 3 disciplines.

These courses would be available to you in a phased manner i.e. some would be available in the first year, a few more would be available in the second year and the remaining in the third year. This phasing has been done for the convenience of counselling and examination. In this scheme all the elective courses have been divided into 6 groups:

Group 1 - BEGE 101, EHD 1, EHD 5, EEC 11, EHI 1, EHI 7, EPS 11, EPA 1, ESO 11, {ECO 1, ECO 2 (To be taken together)}, {MTE 1, MTE 4, MTE 5 (To be taken together)}, BSWE 4, {BPY 1, BPY 2 (To be taken together)}, {BPC 1, BPC 2 (to be taken together)} & BULE1.

Group 2 - BEGE 102, EHD 2, BHDE 108, BECE 2, EHI 2, BPSE 212, BPAE 102, BRDE 101, ESO 12, {MTE 2, MTE 6 (To be taken together)}, {BPY 3, BPY 4 (To be taken together)}, {BPC 3, BPC 4 (to be taken together)} & BULE 2.

Group 3 - BEGE 103, BEGE 108, EHD 3, EEC 10, EEC 13, EHI 3, EPS 3, EPS 8, EPA 3, ESO 13, ECO 5, ECO 7, {MTE 7, MTE 8 (To be taken together)}, BSWE 5, {BPY 5, BPY 8 (To be taken together)}, {BPC 5, BPC 6 (to be taken together)} & BULE 3.

Group 6 - BEGE 104, BEGE 107, EHD 4, BECE 16, EEC 7, EHI 6, EPS 6, EPS 9, EPA 6, ESO 16, ECO 10, ECO 11, {MTE 13, MTE 14 (to be taken together)}, {BPY 11, BPY 12 (to be taken together)}, {BPCE 22, BPCE 23 (to be taken together)}, BULE 6.

Only Group 1 and 2 courses are available in the first year. In the first year you have to choose courses worth 16 Credits only from elective courses. Select 8 Credits from each group. Elective Courses from rest of the group would be offered in second and third year.

You should offer elective courses in such a way that overlapping is avoided i.e. you should offer courses of 8 credits from Group 1 and 8 credits from Group 2.

Application-Oriented Courses: In the third year you have to take courses worth 8 or 16 credits from this group. While selecting these courses make sure that they are of use to you in the profession, you are working in or intend to take up in future.

In the first year of study, you should take 16 credits in Foundation Courses (BSHF101, FEG1 or FHD2 and FEG2 or any one of MILs), and the remaining 16 credits in Elective Courses. In the second year you should take the remaining 8 credits of Foundation Course (FST1) and Elective Courses. In the third year you should take 16 or 24 credits in Elective courses and 16 or 8 credits in Application-Oriented Courses. We discuss below the choices available in all these groups.

Foundation Courses: In this category of courses, you have to choose from the following:

FEG 1 or FHD 2

FEG 2 or BHDF 1 or any one of the listed Modern Indian Languages.

BSHF 101 (Foundation Course in Humanities and Social Sciences), and FST 1 (Foundation Course in Science and Technology) are compulsory, in first and second year of study respectively.

Elective Courses: The main task is to select elective courses. Please remember that as a learner in an Open University you have this unique opportunity of free choice of courses. You must have noticed that the list of elective courses is very big and you have to choose courses worth 56 or 64 credits from this group. However, if you want to choose mathematics, we strongly recommend that you should have studied mathematics as one of the subjects at 10 + 2 level. If you want elective courses in a particular discipline you must take a minimum of 8 credits and a maximum of 48 credits in that discipline.

i) Non-formal: The non-formal stream is for those students who have not passed 10+2 or its equivalent examination. They have to pass Bachelor’s Preparatory Programme of IGNOU to qualify for admission to B.A.

ii) Formal: Formal stream of admission is 10+2 or its equivalent examination.

The university follows the credit system. One credit is equal to 30 hours of learners study time. To earn Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.), a learner has to earn 96 credits in minimum three years with 32 credits per year. For earning 96 credits, a student has to opt for courses from three categories.
