Description

The B.Ed.-M.Ed. Innovative Programme is a three-year programme, with entry and exit options, to prepare educators for school pedagogy (English language, Science, Mathematics and Social Sciences). 

The programme encompasses a wider spectrum of the study of education ranging from foundational courses to professional competency and field-based experiential learning courses.  A strong curricular focus of practice offers students, diverse experiences across various school contexts. Through school internship, students gain insight into the interconnectedness of these educational ecosystems. Inclusion is a fundamental aspect of the curricular orientation, influencing both programmatic offering and practice.

The programme employs an integrated, discipline-based approach to the formation of professional knowledge and practice by fostering communities of practice. It facilitates a proactive orientation to the institutional context of practice and the realities of schools.  Also envisioning professional development as a continuous process, allowing students to explore potential opportunities through exposure to field and practicum-based activities.  The curriculum of the revised programme is thoughtfully restructured to offer wider choices to learners and opportunities to specialise in distinct domains within educational studies.

The medium of instruction is English. Students are required to write their assignments, reports and examinations exclusively in English.

The entire three-year B.Ed. M.Ed. programme has a total of 120 credits. The two-year B.Ed programme has a total of 80 credits, and the two-year M.Ed programme has a total of 80 credits.

All three programmes include education studies (core and electives), education research courses, professional competency courses, experiential learning courses and education specialization elective courses. An additional school internship component is exclusive to the two-year B.Ed. programme. The students of two-year M.Ed. will have to mandatorily choose ‘Teacher Education’ as one of the education specialization elective courses.

The programme aims to transform them into subject experts, equipped with a comprehensive understanding of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and diverse applications of media and technology. It integrates education theory and practice through historical, psychological, sociological, and philosophical perspectives of a subject, alongside a deeper understanding of the social context of schools and learners. The programme prepares professionals to proactively engage with and reinvigorate the institutional contexts and work inclusively to achieve education for all.
