In a significant development, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has launched 19 new four-year degree courses in arts, science, and commerce, starting from January 2024. The inauguration ceremony was graced by UGC chairman Professor Mamidala Jagdish Kumar at the Visakhapatnam Regional Centre of IGNOU.
The courses are easily accessible online through the Swayam portal, offering Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (BSc), Bachelor of Commerce (BCom), and specialized programs in areas like economics, history, psychology, and more. This move by IGNOU opens up diverse educational opportunities for students across the country.
One notable feature of these courses is their flexibility, allowing for multiple entries and exits. This means that students can earn certificates, diplomas, or degrees based on the credits they accumulate at different stages of their educational journey. This flexibility caters to the varied needs and pace of learners, making education more accessible and adaptable.
Language enthusiasts will also find a range of options as IGNOU is offering language courses in English, Hindi, and Urdu. This inclusive approach aims to accommodate students from different linguistic backgrounds, promoting a diverse and inclusive learning environment.
Interested candidates can access further details about these courses on the IGNOU website. This initiative marks a step towards democratizing education, providing a platform for learners to pursue their academic aspirations with convenience and flexibility.
As IGNOU continues to embrace online education through the Swayam portal, it reinforces its commitment to reaching a broader audience and making quality education more accessible to learners across the nation.
