University of Mumbai will be starting two new master's degree courses this academic year. Students of history now have the option to enroll for an MA in Ancient Indian Culture and Archaeology (MA-AICA) and MA in Buddhist Studies (MA-BS).
The syllabus of this course has been thoroughly revised in line with the credit based grading system. It comprises papers ranging from stone-age India to history of theatre and performing arts in India.
It is heard that there are even applied papers like epigraphy, manuscriptology, cultural tourism, etc. This new format of curriculum is bound to give a lot of benefits to students.
