PERSPECTIVE
The College of Vocational Studies was started in August 1972 as an experiment in vocational education on the basis of the recommendation of the Executive Council (E.C. resolution dated 20.02.1972). The E.C. recommended, Interweaving of general education and employment motivation so as to equipt students with vocational skills as an integral part of undergraduate studies. The perspective for the B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programme is even more relevant today. There continues to be need for an undergraduate Programme that equips the student with knowledge, competencies and new skill sets in order to get employment after graduation without the need to pursue any programme of higher education. COMMITTEE The University of Delhi constituted a Committee on 23.02.2010 to prepare draft proposals for restructuring of the courses of B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programme. The Committee constituted by the University comprised of the following members: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Dean*, Faculty of Social Sciences (Chairperson) Prof. Rashmi Aggarwal**, Dean, Faulty of Applied Social Sciences) Prof. Y.P. Singh***, Department of Commerce Dean, Examination (Special Invitee) Dr. Inder Jeet, Principal, College of Vocational Studies (Convenor)

Prof. J.P. Sharma, Department of Commerce replaced Prof. Y.P. Singh who has since retired. The Committee in its meeting held on 15.04.2010 appointed Convenors of sub-committees to be constituted for preparing the draft proposal for revision of syllabus of each of seven B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programmes as per the semester mode. The Committee also decided that the members of these subcommittees will be nominated by the Convenor (Principal) in consultation with the Convenors of the subcommittees. Mr. S.K. Bhatia was made Coordinator to assist the Convenor in coordinating between subcommittees and maintaining minutes etc. The first meeting with the Convenors was held on 17.05.2010 and seven sub-committees were constituted**** with adequate representation of teachers from the College and outside experts from academia and industry. The sub-committees so constituted were entrusted with the task of recommending the nomenclature of the papers as well as the syllabi of the vocational papers. In view of the proposed semesterisation of B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programme.
* Prof. Rajani Palriwala / Prof. Roma Chatterji / Prof. Nandini Sundar **Expressed her inability to continue on the Committee. *** Since retired **** List of sub-committees attached as Annexure-I.

The Committee further decided that the inter-disciplinary papers should be searched which complement the main vocational courses and are directly relevant to the concerned vocational courses. The inter-disciplinary papers may be taken from B.Com. or B.A. (Programme). The sub-committees so constituted held different meetings and submitted the draft proposal for consideration of the Committee. The draft proposal of the sub-committees was discussed by the University constituted Committee in its meeting held on 13.06.2011. The Committee decided to make some minor modifications in the draft proposal and was approved by the Committee for submitting to the Committee of Courses and Studies for Vocational Courses. A meeting of Committee of Courses and Studies for Vocational courses was held on 16.06.2011. The Committee of Courses approved the decisions taken by the Committee for semesterization of B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programme held on 13.06.2011. The Committee of Courses decided to recommend the implementation for semester based syllabus for B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programme w.e.f. academic session 2011-12. The final drafts of seven different B.A. (Vocational Studies) Programme are enclosed.
