Education in India has always been imparted by following indistinguishable patterns. Each succeeding year has seen more or less the same pedagogy and methodology of teaching. Moving from middle school to university level education, the same patterns have been adapted. The senior educationists in India felt the need for a massive change in the education system to incur better knowledge and skills. Just then, The NEP (New Education Policy) was announced in the country. It broke many set trends and offered a more holistic education system to the students in India.

These were changes brought at the level of school education, but the universities still needed to change the old-school ways of teaching. There are some new upcoming universities in India, who cater to this. These have come up with a new & different pattern of offering education and admissions. Here, merely having high merit wouldn’t help the student, but an overall development of his/her personality & skills is important too.

Given below are few universities, which offer unique degrees and have equally unique bars set for the child. 


Ashoka University comes among the top of the list of new upcoming universities in India (Sonipat) where Liberal Arts and Sciences education enables effective communication, teamwork, and innovation. Ashoka University provides a holistic education that is liberal, multidisciplinary, and interdisciplinary. It offers a diverse and inclusive space for its students to think deeply, learn across disciplinary boundaries, express themselves creatively, and communicate. 


The University offers Undergraduate Programmes, Graduate Programmes, Ph.D. Programmes. At undergraduate level the university provides BA/ B.Sc. degrees which are typically known as Liberal Arts Degrees. In the course of 3 years, a student has to accumulate 100 credits- 9 Foundation Courses, 12 Major Courses, 2 Co-Curricular Courses & Other (Elective, Minor, Concentration). It seems to be such an interesting course line. A degree you can customise for yourself. Also, if you wish to add another major to your degree, you can add another year and complete it.

Important note- 

What is a Liberal Arts Degree?

A degree where a student has the advantage to choose subjects on the basis of his/her interests, career plans and explore more.
