The Schools of Studies
With a view to develop interdisciplinary programmes, the University operates through its Schools of Studies. Each School is headed by a Director who arranges to organise its academic programmes and courses in coordination with the School faculty and staff, and different academic, administrative and service divisions of the University. The emphasis is on providing a wide choice of courses at different levels.
The following Schools of Studies are in operation currently:
School of Humanities (SOH)
School of Social Sciences (SOSS)
School of Sciences (SOS)
School of Education (SOE)
School of Continuing Education (SOCE)
School of Engineering and Technology (SOET)
School of Management Studies (SOMS)
School of Health Sciences (SOHS)
School of Computer and Information Sciences (SOCIS)
School of Agriculture (SOA)
School of Law (SOL)
School of Journalism and New Media Studies (SOJNMS)

The University offers Certificates, Diplomas, Advance Diplomas, Post Graduate Diplomas and Degrees, which are conventional as well as innovative. Most of these programmes have been developed after need based surveys for such programmes.
a) Defining Credit in ODL
The University follows the Credit System‘ for most of its programmes. Each credit in our system is equivalent to 30 hours of learner study comprising all learning activities (i.e., reading and comprehending the print material, listening to audio, watching video, attending counselling sessions, teleconference and writing assignment responses).
Thus, a 4-credit course involves 120 hours of study and a 6-credit course involves 180 hours of study. This helps the learner to know the academic effort he/she has to put in, to successfully complete a course. Completion of an academic programme (Degree or Diploma) requires successful completion of the assignments, practical, projects and the Term-End Examination as per requirement of each course in a programme.
Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)
The Bachelor‘s Degree Programmes offered through this prospectus follow the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) introduced by UGC.
The CBCS provides the learner with flexibility to study the subjects/courses at their own pace; greater choice of interdisciplinary, intra-disciplinary and skill-based courses; and mobility to different institutions for studies.
The system has the following advantages: Allows learners to choose a combination of interdisciplinary, intra-disciplinary courses, skill oriented courses (even from other disciplines according to their learning needs, interests and aptitude) Makes education broad-based and at par with global standards.
Offers flexibility for learners to study at different times and at different institutions to complete the programme. Credits earned at one institution can be transferred to another institution.
