O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) is a non-profit global university established by the Government of Haryana and recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC). JGU was established as a philanthropic initiative of its Founding Chancellor, Mr. Naveen Jindal in memory of his father, Mr. O.P. Jindal. JGU is one of the few universities in Asia that maintains a 1:8 faculty-student ratio and appoints faculty members from India and different parts of the world with outstanding academic qualifications and experience. JGU is a research intensive university, which is deeply committed to its core institutional values of interdisciplinary and innovative pedagogy; pluralism and rigorous scholarship; and globalism and international engagement.

JGU has made history by breaking into the QS World University Rankings 2020 Edition. We are also the only Indian private university in the top 150 'young' universities in the world (under 50 years of age) in the QS Young University Rankings 2020. JGU is the youngest University in the world to feature in both these rankings. In September 2019, JGU was selected as an 'Institution of Eminence' (IOE) by the Government of India, making JGU one of only eight private universities in India to be awarded this status.

JGU was ranked in the top 700 universities in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2021 Edition, making it India's No. 1 Private University and India's No. 1 University dedicated to the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.

JGU has established nine schools: Jindal Global Law School (JGLS); Jindal Global Business School (JGBS); Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA); Jindal School of Government and Public Policy (JSGP); Jindal School of Liberal Arts & Humanities (JSLH); Jindal School of Journalism & Communication (JSJC); Jindal School of Art & Architecture (JSAA); Jindal School of Banking & Finance (JSBF); the Jindal School of Environment & Sustainability (JSES) and most recently Jindal School of Psychology & Counselling (JSPC). JGU has been granted with "Autonomy" by the University Grants Commission and the Ministry of Education, Government of India, for receiving the “A” Grade from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). This makes JGU the only private university in the state of Haryana and one of the only two private universities in India to be given the status of autonomy.

t is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities (JSLH). As a student in a liberal arts programme you

become an intellectual explorer. The dictionary definition of “explorer” is “...somebody who travels to distant or unfamiliar places to find out more about them.” This is a fairly accurate description of a liberal arts education. As a student in this school of liberal arts and humanities, you can now embark on that journey and ask challenging questions, find out what really matters to you, learn about the world as it is and imagine the world as you think it ought to be.

Foundational courses, such as Mathematics, History, Sociology, Expressive and Creative arts, Literature, languages and writing, are firmly anchored in the liberal arts tradition. Each of these courses will engage you in the practices of inquiry and contemplation, which are the tools necessary for the creation of new knowledge and learning. Teaching methods of liberal education foster self-knowledge and empower the individual to deal with the complexity of our globalized world. These methods include critical thinking, creative problem solving, community engagement and appreciation of diversity, which are embedded in the curriculum and will allow you to become engaged global citizens.

Your years of studies at JSLH will go by very quickly and you will soon find yourself progressing in JSLH or pursuing a study abroad programme with Rollins College, one of the top ranking liberal arts colleges in United States or at Deakin university, Australia. At these partner institutions you will be able to pursue your majors further and explore career possibilities in real-world settings through internships and service learning. While still in India you will have numerous opportunities to meet faculty, staff and students when they visit our Sonipat campus in the coming months. Our exciting third-year syllabi for students completing their degree in JSLH offers much room to develop your interests and aptitudes. Good luck and safe travels in this voyage of mind, heart and spirit.

Liberal Arts is an innovative pedagogy focused on small classes, close faculty-student engagement and a strong interd isc ip l inary foundat ion wi th specializations in specific subjects. Liberal Arts is about the cultivation of the whole person though rigorous reading and writing, along with active experiential learning inside and outside the classroom. Liberal Arts students graduate with knowledge, a flexible range of skills, aptitudes and a life-long curiosity and love of learning.

WHAT IS LIBERAL ARTS ?

A unique four-year dual-degree program with Rollins College in the United States or Deakin University in Australia, two top liberal arts and humanities colleges. Students pursuing this option would study two years at JSLH and the next two years at leading partner universities. At the end of their studies, they would receive a B.A. (Hons.) in a Liberal Arts from JSLH and a B.A. from collaborated university in a subject of their choice.

A three-year BA (Hons.) in Liberal Arts and Humanities with a possible specialization in eleven areas of the student’s choice and an optional semester study abroad facilitated by JSLH.

Page 5: LIBERAL ARTS & HUMANITIES

Why LIBERAL ARTS ?We believe that the best way to learn is to learn from multiple perspectives. Through nineteen core courses and hundreds of optional courses, students engage in a variety of social science and humanities subjects such as Literature, History, Environmental Studies, Political Science, Expressive Arts, and Philosophy. These courses serve as the foundation of our programme and the jumping off point for further study.

INTERDISCIPLINARY COURSES

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNINGWe believe in learning by doing. Our classes place an emphasis on discussion, debate, and hands on activities. Many of our courses feature sizable field work to locations around Delhi / NCR and beyond. Past site visits include Sonipat, Chandni Chowk, Lodi Art Colony, Nizamuddin East, Jaipur Literary Festival, Sarnath, Varanasi, Lucknow and Dharamshala.

While most of our students are bilingual, speaking a third language is a tool which is often undervalued? Our students are also required to take a course in Spanish in their first year and have the option to opt for other languages like French, Mandarin and German in the following years.

SELF-DESIGNED MAJORStudents who have a strong academic record and feel that their desired course of study does not fit into these majors may opt for a Self-Designed Major. This major is designed by the student in consultation with two faculty directors of study. Some past Self-Designed majors have included Art History and Literature, International Relations, Environmental Psychology, Psychology and Expressive Arts.

DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMA unique four-year dual-degree program with Rollins College in the United States or Deakin University in Australia, two top liberal arts and humanities colleges. Students pursuing this option would study two years at JSLH and the next two years at Rollins College or Deakin University. At the end of their studies, they would receive a B.A. (Hons.) in Liberal Arts from JSLH and a B.A. from Rollins College / Deakin University in a subject of their choice.

Testimonials

Student

I can look back and happily say that I know I made the right decision by coming to Jindal and choosing this programme.

The reason JSLH worked well for is that after learning a variety of courses over the foundation period, I was very certain of the decision when it came to choosing my major. Most students feel unsure about this big decision because we have not had enough experience with a lot of subjects prior to college. Liberal Arts gave me the chance of making an informed decision to choose my major and even after that, to choose electives of my interest.

The most important thing about college life, be it at any university, is for a student to be able to learn about himself, the outside world and to be able to say he is happy. Coming into Jindal, I was unsure what the future held but since the first week in I knew I could comfortably call this place my second home. The University offers a variety of sports and competes at a very good level. The classes are very interesting and interactive. Being a student who had not had a lot of motivation or the best experience when it came to academics, I found myself enjoying the courses offered at Jindal. The professors engage in discussions during the classes and teach concepts in a manner that I genuinely found interesting.

Aamer BaswaniJSLH-2017

“Being a part of the JSLH community is truly a blessing. Courses like Expressive arts and Interdisciplinary which engage the students in a lot of field work create the perfect platform for the most wholesome memories and long-lasting bonds, with members across the three batches. Initiatives like the peer mentoring and faculty mentoring promote one-to-one discussions on a regular basis creating a sense of comfort for everyone, especially during the first year when university can get overwhelming. I think this is one of my most cherished aspects of the school. In addition to that, JSLH promotes individuality and acts as a great platform for every student to voice their concerns, showcase their talents, build their interests in areas of social service or research through the constant cultural events and discussions. I think this creates a perfect balance between the work we do and the fun we have (which is a lot!) There is always a feeling of comfort knowing that I'm part of a larger group who share similar levels of enthusiasm and energy in expressing everything the school stands for.
