Description:

A teacher in the 21st- century classroom performs many roles: that of a facilitator, a trainer, a counsellor and above all, an educator. And yet, today’s teacher cannot just be a generalist all-rounder. As jobs become ever more specialised, teachers also have to become specialists, capable not only of instructing, inspiring and educating the next generation, but also possessing the knowledge and expertise to be considered scholars in their own right.

The four-year innovative, integrated B.Sc. B.Ed. (Mathematics) programme primarily aims at preparing such new-age specialised Mathematics teachers. The programme is also an ideal choice for those who wish to pursue their passion for Mathematics with the additional benefit of a professional degree, on an accelerated timeline. It encourages aspiring secondary school mathematics teachers and mathematicians to do an in-depth study of Mathematics and trains them in pedagogy, assessment and classroom management. The programme, through a combination of theoretical discussions, practical explorations in terms of workshops, school internships and field visits ensures that the students are fully prepared, as teachers, to meet the challenges of contemporary classrooms and/or to pursue higher studies in Mathematics, Education and other allied fields.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA:

 

  • A minimum of 60% overall marks in 12th Standard (Intermediate/CBSE/Board examination) 
  • A minimum of 65% marks in Mathematics in 12th Standard (Intermediate/CBSE/Board examination)

Minor courses

These are general/open elective courses open to students of all UG programmes at CVV. These courses allow students to exercise their choice and explore their interests in various fields beyond their core areas. They help them to grow into well-rounded individuals by providing them with a truly interdisciplinary learning experience. While the B.Sc. B.Ed. (Mathematics) programme requires students to take two Minor Courses, they may take additional such courses for more credits, if they feel able to do so. There are several Minor Courses that students can choose from various streams, and the offering changes each year. The full list of such courses is available in the CVV Prospectus 2021-22.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

FAQs about the B.Sc.B.Ed./B.A.B.Ed. Programmes

 

1. What do B.Sc.B.Ed. and B.A.B.Ed. stand for?

Ans: B.Sc.B.Ed. stands for Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education. B.A.B.Ed. stands for Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education.

 

2. Why do you use the nomenclature B.Sc.B.Ed. and B.A.B.Ed.?

Ans: These are 4-year innovative Integrated Teacher Education Programmes (ITEP) which are equivalent to two degree programmes namely B.Sc. and B.Ed. and B.A. and B.Ed., respectively. Following the UGC nomenclature for dual degree programmes, we have used the nomenclature Integrated B.Sc.B.Ed. and Integrated B.A.B.Ed. [Ref. UGC Specification of Degrees, March 2014. ] 

 

3. Are these programmes recognised by the concerned body?

Ans: Yes. The programmes are recognised by the concerned body i.e. the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE-SRC). [Ref. Letter of recognition/ approval]
