Manonmaniam Sundaranar University has introduced Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), a new pattern of curriculum for the UG students from the academic year 2008-2009. This has been implemented as per directions of the Tamil Nadu State Council for Higher Education (TANSCHE). In the revised CBCS syllabus, students have a good deal of freedom in designing their own curriculum to suit their needs. They can take any course offered in any department as long as they fulfill the pre-requisites for that course.
Each student covers the following four type of courses during the degree program:
A set of core papers that include papers in the major field of study selected by the student. Core courses are mandatory in nature.
A set of allied papers in which limited choice is given to the students.
A set of skill-based elective courses, left to the choice of students, within their chosen major. It has been introduced to bring out specific interests of students in order to make them readily employable. Course marks are awarded with an external and internal ratio of 75:25.
Non-major Elective Courses:
A set of Non-Major electives are left to the choice of the students, outside of their chosen major. The subjects other than the major & allied shall be opted by the students as Non - Major Elective.
Part- V Extension Activities:
There are extension activities like NCC, NSS, YOGA and YRC in our college. It is a must for each student to take part in at-least in any one of these activities for the fulfillment of the degree.
