Message from the Vice-Chancellor
Dear Learners, At the outset, let me extend my greetings to each one of you on joining Indira Gandhi National Open University one of the mega Universities of the world with over 27 lac learners. The IGNOU, established by an Act of Parliament in 1985 as a Central Open University, is committed to provide seamless education to all sections of the society transcending the barriers of place, pace, age, caste, creed and religion. As an important player in national mission of democratizing education, IGNOU has reached education to the unreached in all the nooks and corners of the country. In the pursuit of this goal IGNOU has become the ‘University of the Masses’ and is at the forefront of taking education to the doorsteps of learners over the years even in the remotely located disadvantaged sections of the society. The quality self-instructional material provided to the learners is developed by the qualified, expert and renowned teachers in the field keeping in view the requirements of the target groups. The University offers a wide range of academic, professional and technical programmes leading to certificate, diploma, degree, postgraduate degree and doctoral research for the learners catering to their needs for further studies, education for employment, enhancement of technical knowledge or enrichment of professional knowhow. All the programmes are well received by the concerned job sectors in the corporate and professional world. The dedicated faculty of IGNOU is engaged in identifying educational needs of different sectors in the society and bring need based, specific and tailor made programmes with excellent features of openness, flexibility and leaner-centeredness in the fields of health, law, education, continuing education, agriculture, social sciences, hospitality, performing arts, IT, engineering, humanities, translation studies, mass media, women and gender and extension services among others. In order to enrich the study material, extensive use of audio/video programmes developed by the Electronic Media Production Centre, IGNOU is made by the University. To further supplement the educational programmes, the study lessons are broadcast/telecast on Gyan Vani FM Channels and Gyan Darshan TV Channels. The University reaches learners by making use of multiple delivery channels. In addition to making use of distance education mode of instruction, the University has quite successfully launched a number of online programmes which are well received by the learners. In order to provide seamless student support to its learners, the University has established a wide ‘student support services network’ consisting of 67 Regional Centres and over 3000 learner support centres. These learner support centres organise counseling sessions for the benefit of the learners and have become much sought after peer contact points especially for the learners staying in far-flung areas. Such a delivery mechanism provides the learners with the flexibility to accommodate the mid-session dislocations due to job compulsions or otherwise. The learners have the option to change their Regional viii IGNOU Common Prospectus

Centre from one part of the country to another and opt for the most suitable Study Centre depending upon the requirement of the concerned programme of study. IGNOU has further gone borderless in allowing its learners to take term-end-examinations in any of the examination centres through out the country irrespective of the study centres to which the learner belongs. IGNOU has a large body of academic and non-academic staff working for the learners to provide in-time academic and administrative support. In order to provide flexibility in admission schedule, IGNOU has been following the Scheme of ‘Walkin-Admission’ for the last few years which has earned learners’ appreciation. A prospective learner can any time go to the nearest Regional Centre and submit the admission form for the programme of his/her choice. The applications so received will be considered for the ensuing academic session keeping in view the deadlines followed for commencement of the said session. In order to reach its learners with updated information, IGNOU makes extensive use of its Web resources and mobile technology where learner profile including registration details, different schedules and deadlines, results and information on grade cards, is shared with the learners from time to time. The ‘e-GyanKosh’, an Educational Web Resource of the University, has emerged as one of the largest educational resource repositories of the world. The ‘eGyanKosh’ is available to the world as a free resource repository to facilitate self learners and empower educators where more than 2200 courses and 2000 video lectures are available online. Anyone can register free of cost and access learning resources available in print and video formats. In order to provide higher educational opportunities to the defence personnel, IGNOU has launched Educational Projects in association with the Defence Forces in the name of ‘Gyandeep’, ‘Sagardeep’ and Nabhdeep’. Sincere efforts to provide same kind of educational opportunity to the personnel belonging to CISF are being made by us. Above all, IGNOU, along with its capacity, capability, infrastructure and resources to transform your educational experience into a life long learning experience, has commitment to serve you with quality education. Once again Congratulations on becoming the part of this Great Educational Mission of the IGNOU family. With best wishes, (M Aslam) Vice-Chancellor

Academic Programmes

university system is more learner-oriented and the learner is an active participant in the pedagogical (teaching and learning) process. Most of the instructions are imparted through distance education methodology and face-to-face mode as per the requirement. The University follows a multimedia approach for instruction, which comprises: a) Self Instructional Written Material: The printed study material (written in self-instructional style) for both theory and practical components of the programmes is supplied to the learners in batches of blocks for every course (on an average 1 block per credit). A block which comes in the form of a booklet usually comprises 3 to 5 units. b) Audio-Visual Material Aids: The learning package contains audio and video CDs which have been produced by the University for better clarification and enhancement of understanding of the course material given to the learners. A video programme is normally of 25-30 minutes duration. The video cassettes are screened at the study centres during specific sessions which are duly notified for the benefit of the learners. The video programmes are telecast on National Network of Doordarshan and Gyan Darshan. All Gyan Vani stations are broadcasting curriculum based audio programmes. In addition, some selected stations of All India Radio are also broadcasting the audio programmes. Learners can confirm the dates for the programmes from their study centres. The information is also provided through the university website. c) Counselling Sessions: Normally counselling sessions are held as per schedule drawn by the Study Centres. These are mostly held outside the regular working hours of the host institutions where the study centres are located. d) Teleconferences: Live teleconferencing sessions are conducted via satellite through interactive Gyan Darshan Channel as well as simulcasted on ‘Edusat’ channel from the University studios at EMPC, the schedule of which is made available at the study centres. e) Practicals/Project Work: Some Programmes have practical/project component also. Practicals are held at designated institutions for which schedule is provided by the Study Centres. Attendance at practicals is compulsory. For project work, comprehensive project guide, in the form of a booklet, is provided to the student alongwith the study materials.

certification, improvement of skills, acquisition of professional qualifications, continuing education and professional development at work place, self-enrichment, diversification and updation of knowledge, and empowerment.

1.6

Course Preparation

Learning material is specially prepared by teams of experts drawn from different Universities and specialised Institutions in the area spread throughout the country as well as inhouse faculty. The material are scrutinised by the content experts, supervised by the instructors/unit designers and edited by the language experts at IGNOU before these are finally sent for printing. Similarly, audio and video cassettes are produced in consultation with the course writers, inhouse faculty and producers. The material is previewed and reviewed by the faculty as well as outside experts and edited/modified, wherever necessary, before they are finally despatched to the students, Study Centres and Telecast through Gyan Darshan.

1.7

Credit System

The University follows the ‘Credit System’ for most of its programmes. Each credit in our system is equivalent to 30 hours of student study comprising all learning activities (i.e. reading and comprehending the print material, listening to audio, watching video, attending counselling sessions, teleconference and writing assignment responses). Thus, a 4-credit course involves 120 hours of study. This helps the learner to know the academic effort he/she has to put in, to successfully complete a course. Completion of an academic programme (Degree or Diploma) requires successful completion of the assignments, practicals projects and the term-end examination of each course in a programme.

Support Services

1.10

Evaluation System

In order to provide individualised support to its learners, the University has a large number of Study Centres, spread throughout the country. These Study Centres are coordinated by 60 Regional Centres and Recognised Regional Centres. At the Study Centres, the learners interact with the Academic Counsellors and other learners, refer to books in the Library, watch/listen to video/audio programmes and interact with the Coordinator on administrative and academic matters. The list of Regional and Study Centres is given in this handbook. Support services are also provided through Work Centres, Programme Study Centres, Skill Development Centres and Special Study Centres.

The system of evaluation in IGNOU is also different from that of conventional universities. IGNOU has a multitier system of evaluation. 1. Self-assessment exercises within each unit of study. 2. Continuous evaluation mainly through assignments which are tutor-marked, practical assignments and seminar/ workshops/extended contact programmes. 3. The term-end examinations. 4. Project works The evaluation of learners depends upon various instructional activities undertaken by them. A learner has to write assignment responses compulsorily before taking term-end examination from time to time to complete an academic programme. A learner has to submit TMA responses to the Coordinator of the Study Centre concerned to which

2.1.12 MA in Participatory Development (MAPD)
To facililate inclusive and sustainable development Participatory development as an approach is integral to current national and international development practice and debate. Those working in the development field need to take into consideration new realities of constitutional bodies like panchayats and municipalities, as well as promote participation of marginalised sections like tribals, dalits and women in development programmes and projects. They need to be aware of issues of democratic governance, which have contributed to the empowerment of the poor and marginalised women’s political empowerment and recenl governmental interventions like the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) and Right to Information (RTI) In addition the development agenda has generated a growing demand for trained workers to manage fieldbased development interventions. Many government agencies, national/international NGOs, donors as well as corporates are recruiting development workers and professionals to undertake challenging field responsibilities to ensure they are implemented in a manner that supports participation and ownership by local communities. Issues related to management of development organisations are also at the forefront of what is required of development sector professionals. Responding to these trends to build quality human resources in the development sector, lGNOU and PRIA have entered into a unique collaboration to design and deliver MA participatory Development.  The main objective of the programme are:  To enable critical analyses of development models, policies, processes and its implementation.

positive, affirmative action towards gender equality and equity. It is now widely acknowledged that gender considerations need to be reflected in all development plans, programmes and policies. There is growing concern over the isolation of women in so-called “soft” sectors in education, employment and development rather than mainstreaming gender concerns across all organizations, institutions and activities. While the concerns are clearly articulated, national goals and the UN millennium development goals cannot be achieved without concrete effort towards gender equality. Achieving gender equality and gender equity requires multi-pronged approaches and strategies. One of the key approaches and strategies revolves around design and development of suitable educational programmes that equip practitioners and policy makers with the requisite knowledge and skills to make a valuable contribution in this sphere. The Master’s/ Postgraduate Diploma programmes would make an excellent foundation for analyzing, critically assessing existing development interventions and promoting gender-sensitive/genderbased research and action. The strong focus envisaged on positive affirmative action would be of considerable significance.

# Students will have an exit option at the end of 6 months and 1st year to get PG Certificate in Extension and Development Studies (Course1-4) Post-Graduate Diploma in Extension and Development Studies (Course1-7), respectively. * Students will have to choose one elective course. MEDSE-15 is only on offer right now.

Programme Objectives
The programmes seek to enable learners to:  analyze extent of gender-sensitivity of development interventions;  conduct gender analysis;  critically analyze gender differentials in selected development sectors;  identify appropriate research designs and methodologies for a range of research problems;  suggest positive affirmative action in development planning and practice to promote gender equity and equality

Master of Arts in Gender and Development Studies (MAGD)

The programme is likely to be of interest to academics and researchers; trainers, facilitators, supervisors; staff of organizations working in the area of gender and development; government personnel; personnel working in banks financial institutions. Development policies and practices have a differential impact on women and men. This necessitates an understanding of the “gender gap” in access to resources, privileges, entitlements and choices. Consensus has evolved around the need to explore the “gender gap” in key development sectors and how this gap can be bridged. There is now greater emphasis on main-streaming gender perspectives into the development process. This will contribute to building a gender-sensitive rubric of development, recasting development theory and action in the “direction of improved living standards, socially responsible management and use of resources, elimination of gender subordination and socioeconomic inequality as well as to promote the organizational restructuring required to bring about desirable change.” Exploration of gender issues has become an important activity for most non-governmental organizations. Increasing emphasis is being laid in Governmental agencies on establishing gender-differential impacts and taking

Broad Programme Structure

4.1 MASTER DEGREE PROGRAMME
4.1.1 Master of Science in Counselling and Family Therapy (MSCCFT)
The M.Sc. programme in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy is aimed at developing professionals in this vital field, which is gaining greater salience in the present times both from social and employment perspectives. The contemporary social scenario has resulted in an increased need and demand for professional support in terms of counselling and family therapy, which is being increasingly recognized as an effective approach both for promoting positives like strengthening family ties, fostering positive parenting, and increasing resilience of individuals in vulnerable situations as well as for addressing negative aspects such as socio-psychological problems, maladaptive behaviours, declining mental health, and psychosomatic disorders that are being increasingly witnessed in the present times. However, though the need for counselling and family therapy professionals is being increasingly felt, there is a dearth of professional support and experts who could lend a helping hand in promoting positive family processes and help individual family members in distress in a comprehensive way. As a result, there is a tremendous felt need for education and training in this area. By developing the requisite knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy, this unique programme of study would help to train professional cadres in the field, equipping them for both wage-employment and self- employment, and thus fill the existing lacuna. A remarkable feature of this programme of study is its focus on the applied aspect and the thrust on opportunities for hands-on experience for the learner. In fact, almost half the credits of this Master’s Degree Programme are ear-marked for application-oriented learning opportunities. In the second year of the programme, the learner has the option to be trained in Marital and Family Therapy and Counselling Child and Adolescent Counselling and Family Therapy or Substance Abuse Counselling and Family Therapy. Yet another special feature of the programme is that it has a provision of exit point for learners (after one year) in the form of P.G. Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy (PGDCFT). The programme has theory, supervised practicum, internship, and dissertation as components. The courses that comprise the Master’s programme, along with the credit weightage, are as follows:

Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy (PGDCFT)

The Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and family Therapy is aimed at developing professionals in this vital field, which is gaining greater salience in the present times both from social, and employment perspectives. The contemporary social scenario has resulted in an increased need and demand for professional support in terms or counselling and family therapy, which is being increasing recognized as an effective approach both for promoting positives like strengthening families, fostering positive parenting, and increasing resilience of individuals in vulnerable situations as well as for addressing negative aspects such as social-psychological problems, maladaptive behaviours, declining mental health and psychosomatic disorders that are being increasing witnessed in the present times. However, though the need for counselling and family therapy professionals is being increasingly felt, there is a dearth of professional support and experts who could lend a helping hand in promoting positive family processes and help individual family members in distress in a comprehensive way. As a result, there is a tremendous felt need for education and training in this area. By developing the requisite knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy, this unique programme of study would help to train professional cadres in the field, equipping them for both wage-employment and selfemployment. and thus fill the existing lacuna. A unique feature of this programme of study is that on completing it the learner can enroll for the second year of M.Sc. in Counselling and Family Therapy [M.Sc. (CFT)].

...English 102-06 Prof. Leah Milne September 26, 2013 Who makes standards higher, and who’s okay with their child just doing “okay?” A child’s development is a very interesting thing. It has so many different ways of happening. The development of a child has many stages that it goes through. There has been a lot of different theories for how a child develops and why they it happens this way. Not all types of children develop in the same way. Your location, what school you attend what type of parents you have and etc. can determine how you develop. Also your ethnicity or race can affect how you develop and “grow up”. What I am interested in learning more about is how Asian American parents help their child develop and why it is seen as if African American children don’t strive or have the motivation to succeed as well as Asian American children. Although this may be a stereotype, it is what I see a lot; from my own experiences and from how the media portrays this. When I say media, I mean the news and movies. I want to find out what these two parents are doing differently and how we can get both groups of kids to succeed equally. What I am trying to focus my research on are children from African American families and Asian families. I want to focus on these two groups because they seem like they are on two different spectrums of learning ways. I don’t know this for sure yet. What I think is that Asian parents are a maybe stricter than African American parents. ......

...1-29-2015 Prospectus I will study the workings of Classical Greece’s political economy. It is important for me to understand this because I am minoring in Philosophy. Greece is important to Philosophy because many great thinkers such as Pythagoras and Socrates were “Greek” thinkers. So more or less, I chose Greece for a personal educational gain rather than just some random society to write a research paper on. World historians and readers alike should be interested in this research because from Greece came the father of Western Philosophy, which is the backbone of what is taught in Western academia and really had a huge impact to the world, as we know it. With Philosophy comes questions, with questions come many great answers that impact societies and even the earth. I want to study how Greece’s political economy impacted philosophic thinkers and people alike. In order to help readers understand whether or not outside forces like society’s political economy impacts deeper thinking like philosophy I will dive deep into Athenian Democracy, documents certain philosophers wrote in the day and time in which they lived, and even look into some other people of the time who had strong opinions on what exactly was going on them. Philosophy impacted more than most people think and I am sure in my research I will be able to back that up with primary sources to prove my argument. In writing this research paper I will be exploring the political economy of Classical Greece between......

...Poorva Singh Paul Tchir B02 Assignment #2: Prospectus 2 February 2016 Caste System: Effects of the British Regime In the realm of Hinduism, the caste system originated as a cycle indicating that one’s current actions would be the deciding point of which caste they would be born into in their next life. This karmic distribution was intended to reiterate the importance of a predestined dharma, or duty, that one would be obligated to fulfill according to the caste they were birthed into. The four castes, Brahmin as the priests, Kshatriya as the warriors, Vaisyas as the merchants and Shudras as the laborers became established to regulate each separate yet equally important role. However, scholars have argued that although the castes were not originated to instigate hierarchy but to perpetuate the sense of duties- it inevitably evolved into more of a class system, reconfiguring the meaning of the idea of caste itself. Scholars have also proposed that the context in which the caste system was established seemed to take a tangent from religious volition and became a means of categorization instead. In the face of this apparent hypocrisy begs the question: Did the colonization of India by Britain in the 19th century deter the caste system because of their personal interpretation of it towards a hierarchy rather than a means of accomplishing one’s spiritual duty? One of the plausible answers to this question is that the reign of the British empire during the 19th century......

Research Prospectus

...Mormonism is a Cult   The issue I intend to research is how the modern religion of Mormonism shows the same qualities as a large cult. When we were choosing topics in class, we had discussed about a paper that a student intended to write about that was very broad. Does religion cause war? When we had to simplify that topic I wrote down something along the lines of why modern Mormons go on religious missions today? At home I had researched the means of why Mormonism is the only religion that continues to spread its works around and so on. But in most of my research a lot of associations of cults and secret groups kept popping up on my screen. Looking into these articles and conspiracies, I found small relationships of Mormonism and cults like forms of practice. What I found that really took my attention was the tie of Mormonism and politics. Fascinating conspiracies of cult-like ideas root from the election of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. The issue of religion itself is included into the constitution and has many controversial issues within.   My topic of religion matters because it is a very sensitive word that takes on a lot of meaning. People dedicate their lives for faith and frown upon certain human interactions like love and controls it. I chose this because I do not understand religion and for some reason it is wrong to question it.    My basic research question stems from Mormonism and cults. Other key words when researching are religion and politics and cult......
