Ahmedabad University - A Liberal Education

Programmes

At Ahmedabad University, our programmes prepare students for more than just a successful career in the field of their choice. They prepare them for life. Because we believe that what education really entails is solving problems and questioning things as they exist in order to create a better world. 

Our programmes are designed keeping in mind the changing needs of the society and the environment. Before reaching the classrooms, they are vetted thoroughly through a long process wherein the most innovative and promising areas of study are identified through extensive research. This rigorous process then manifests itself into an array of courses which we offer to our students to choose from. Moreover, our multi-disciplinary approach plays a pivotal role in keeping the curriculum incisive by making sure that our students learn to connect ideas and disciplines while addressing issues.

The Undergraduate Programme at Ahmedabad University provides skills, promotes citizenship, builds courage, and inculcates responsibility. It is aimed at providing broad and deep education that will equip the student to navigate the world in which she lives and become an agent of change in the betterment of her own life and that of the society. The undergraduate education is premised on the fact that it is broad enough for the student to discover her passion in life and prepare her to pursue the passion and yet build deep expertise in her chosen field. It is the ambition of the University to facilitate crossover of disciplinary learning. A transdisciplinary problem definition and solving, critical thinking and analytical skills, intellectual and emotional depth, and an exposure to the world of disciplines from humanities to life sciences is the foundation of an Ahmedabad education. Undergraduate education, for many, is also a terminal degree hence, it must provide a pathway to livelihood.

Our research-oriented and rigorous doctoral programmes provide a deep training to our doctoral students. Our programmes build strong background through course work and research projects/rotations.
