UGC- NET HUMANITIES

(HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY)

With the path breaking policies and reforms of the University Grants Commission and the introduction of UGC recommended scales of pay for University and College teachers in all states across the country, a lectureship has become a prestigious position to aspire for, and an attractive profession to be happy with. The CSIR/ UGC JRF-NET exam is conducted for the students of Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science background. We are happy to hold hands with students of the Humanities stream and help them successfully cross this crucial threshold, opening out to a bright future in research and/ or teaching. The educational reforms and progressive initiatives by Government of India, massive investment in education by government and private agencies, a large number of vacancies in the coming years, make it imperative that a student be guided properly and effectively to compete successfully in these examinations.

Humanities, comprising History, Philosophy, Literature and the Arts are ancient disciplines representing the soul of a nation. It is only fitting that fundamental research and innovative teaching in these disciplines is encouraged, and bright students attracted to these subjects. We need brilliant young minds to master these subjects and pass on the legacy to future generations.

At Astra we have designed a dynamic system that integrates classrooms learning with facilities for library and online referencing plus effective workshops dedicated to practically answering previous question papers, getting them valued day after day till the ability to tackle any question would be an easy task.
