    • Journalism
    • Art & Design
    • Historical Tourism
    • Counseling
  • The course structure is such that you have to study first and the last semester in CIC which includes some core papers. And from the second semester to fifth you are free to choose your paper and college. From 2nd to 5th semester you have to study 3 core papers (stream specific) in college with 1 elective paper in the Project format in CIC only.

  • Quality of teaching is good , young and doctrate teachers following a pattern of guidance and mentorship instead of spoon feeding which makes you more responsible.

  • The daily routine for a humanities student at CIC is rigorous and extensive. Classes in the first semester start at 9 a.m. and continue till 2 p.m. as there are 5 papers which are taught in the first semester namely Art of communication, cultural diversity, impact of technology, environmental science and research methodology.
  • The students at CIC are encouraged to take part in various workshops and seminars conducted in and around the university. For example, in my first semester, I took part in various workshops and seminars such as a workshop on creativity in communication conducted by Prof. Brij Bakshi, former creative head at Doordarshan and visiting professor at CIC, theatre workshop conducted by renowned theatre personality Hadi Sarmadi, a 2 months course on writing a manuscript etc.
  • Due to the new CBCS ranking system adopted by the university, students at CIC for the purpose of securing marks in their internal assessment are required to give presentations on various topics for which they are evaluated by the mentors.
  • The daily routine at CIC keeps changing every semester. B.A. Honours Humanities and Social Sciences is taught with the meta college concept. What this means is that after the end of first semester, all the students are required to go to other colleges of Delhi University from semester II - V and study the subjects of their choice in accordance with the 4 streams offered at CIC namely - Journalism, Counselling, Art and Design and Historical Tourism. Students are required to choose papers in accordance with the stream of their choice and are guided through this process by the mentors at CIC. For example, I have completed my second semester from Ramjas college studying 3 papers of political science honours and may be going to Hindu college next semester for studying other papers of my choice. A student of B.A. Honours Humanities and Social Sciences is required to study 4 papers from semesters II to V which include 3 theory papers to be taught at other colleges of Delhi University and one project paper to be taught at CIC under the guidance of the mentor.
  • The students are expected to engage in extensive research, literature survey and field work for the purpose of these semester long projects and are required to give 2 presentations for the same, one being the mid-semester presentation and the other being the final presentation at the end of the semester.
  • The overall experience at CIC is good, it is located in North Campus, Delhi University very near to the Vishwavidyalaya metro station and has good infrastructure, better than most colleges of DU. The canteen remains the most popular hangout spot for CIC students.

  • There are 2 bachelor courses at CIC
    1) B.A. Honours Humanities and Social Sciences
    2) B.Tech IT and Mathematical innovations

    Admission to these courses is through an entrance test in the month of June. 40 students are admitted per course. For more details regarding the admission process, please visit cic.du.ac.in

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
  • Hey I am kapil, a student of CIC DU. There are around 40 students in every batch. Usually our schedule get's very hectic since our classes commences from 9AM to 5PM. The main focus of the faculty is to push the student to learn by themselves as what a student learn by himself will remain with him forever, students also give a good response as they dont just cram up things, they present whatever they have learnt in the form of practicals and projects which is quite different from other colleges. In each semister we do around 5 to 6 projects per student. Projects are generally IT related. Apart from usual IT and Mathmatics we are given a choice in 2nd semester to study and specialise in one of the subjects Biology,Economics or Electronics.I have choosen Biology as a specialisation subject.

                               At present one of my major projects is in robotics.The idea is to make a bot that could work in the plases like padestrian market plases(like Cannaught place), Railway stations, Campus area etc. It will move around and pick the papers, plastic wrappers and collect them in a particular place from where it could be easily picked up by agencies like MCD.

                          The teachers here are very much cooperative they are there for you, any time.Sometimes they do come even at the weekends to clear our doubts and to help us in our projects.We are provided with full wifi access to promote self learning methodology.In every summer brake we have to do internship, people go to DRDO, Airtel, FMS, Doordarshan etc., not only that, after the internship is done it is evaluated by teachers in the form of a presentation.

           There are various socities working in our college like Autonomi(robotics society), Vasudhara(eco club), Vimarsh(debate club) etc. Almost all the outstationed students get the university hostel. There is a canteen in the college, not very big but serves as a good quick food point. 

 


CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
  • There are many clubs as mentioned before also, as far as social associations are consernd there is a group called saksham runned in CIC it's objective is to develop skill's in lower section of the society so that they can lead a socially acceptable life.  

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE
