This programme centres on interdisciplinary FCs, introducing students to Liberal Arts principles and fostering lifelong learning. Notable FCs include Writing Seminar, South Asia in Global History, Reason and Logic, Self and Identity, Sociology, Economics, Data Literacy and History of Science. Major courses commence in the third semester, with a capstone research course in the third year and an extensive research dissertation in the fourth year.
