East Campus

SH East Campus

The East Campus is the new, forward-looking wing of Sacred Heart College (Autonomous), Kochi.

It is envisaged as the backbone of its foray into frontier academic disciplines. The East Camps is distinguished in the diversity of its academic programmes as well as in its approach to academics, with special emphasis on research and knowledge creation as befits higher education. Apart from conventional stress on knowledge, the campus endeavours to cultivate in its students habits such as self-discipline, critical thinking, inquisitiveness and social and emotional intelligence, which are the attributes of holistic education. It also seeks to promote a multicultural learning environment without compromising the great values enshrined in our constitution and the rich Indian heritage of interiority, and lasting and self-sacrificing relationships.

SH East Campus started functioning in the academic year 2020-21 with four UG programmes and one PG programme. The campus functions more or less independently of the Main Campus, as envisioned by the state government in its policy on introducing self-financing programmes in aided colleges, and shall have activities, rules and regulations specific to the campus.

Taking cognizance of the significance of skill development as a national priority, the programmes on the campus endeavour to lay adequate emphasis on skill development in the respective disciplines. The academic requirements of the East Campus include earning the required number of credits and the completion of four extra credits earned through add-on courses, besides completing the mandatory 40-hour service-learning module.

Details of the Programmes on the Campus

Department of English

B. A. English Language and Literature - Model 1                

The study of language and literature has traditionally been central to Humanities. In addition to equipping students with the ability to appreciate literature, it trains them to be discerning readers. Accordingly, the Model 1 UG programme offered by the college imbibes not only the core tenets of a traditional literature course but is also attuned to negotiate the complexities raised by the information age, characterized by a wealth of information and a resultant poverty of attention. We imagine the graduates of this programme as discerning readers, tasteful connoisseurs of art and socially outstanding citizens. The graduates of BA English are expected to find employment in various fields involving the use of writing skills, education and training, marketing, administration, etc., apart from opportunities in higher education.

The programme consists of 13 Core Courses in Literature, 6 Common Courses-I (English), 4 Common Courses II (additional languages), 4 Complementary Courses (Sociology/ Psychology), 2 Complementary courses in Literary History,), 1 Core Course in Environment and Human Rights, 1 Open course and 1 Elective Course (out of 4) in the Core subject. In addition to this, the students are expected to prepare a research project in the final semester in order to acquire the required number of credits. For the complementary subject, the board has decided to adopt Sociology since the propensity of Literary Studies in recent years has been towards Critical Humanities. Under the electives in semester four the college intends to offer all four subjects, namely, Comparative Literature, Modern Malayalam Literature in Translation, Regional Literatures in Translation and Voices from the Margins. These courses will be delivered as guided sessions as well as online sessions. The ambit of the project in the fourth semester has been expanded to include creative writing projects.

Scope of BA English Language and Literature

Higher Studies: MA with specialisation in English/Mass Communication/Journalism/Women’s Studies/Library Science/all other programmes for which the eligibility is graduate degree.

Jobs Options: Editorial assistant, EFL/school teacher, Content writer, Journalist, Publishing copy-editor/proof-reader, Web content manager, Copy Writer, Media Researcher, Social Media Manager etc.

M. A. English Literature 

Master’s programme in English is oriented towards research and hence the emphasis is on guiding the students to frontier areas. The multi-pronged approach adopted in the syllabus gives equal importance to a sound knowledge of the basic texts and an initiation into contemporary discourses. The first two semesters provide the students with a period-based overview of English literature, the third semester makes a genre/domain-oriented approach. This includes areas such as cultural studies, gender studies and fiction studies. In the fourth semester, the students are offered a basket of choices from which each one can choose four papers according to his/her taste and predilection.

While retaining the general structure of the University syllabus, the Board of Studies of the college has introduced radical changes in the curriculum. An important thrust area is elective courses in

semester four, wherein the students are offered a basket of nine courses from which each student can pick freely according to his/her interest. The syllabus provides the students with adequate space for honing their creative and critical thinking skills. Likewise, every question paper will contain a mandatory section in Part C for application-oriented answers.
