St. Stephen's College, one of the prestigious colleges of the University of Delhi, is likely to introduce BA (Hons) in Political Science from 2017. The decision is being taken by St Stephens College as the University of Delhi had earlier decided to launch additional courses in some of its 63 affiliated colleges from this academic session. However, the final decision will be made after a nod from the University Grants Commission (UGC). 

Beside St Stephens College, Swami Shraddhanand and Bhagini Nivedita College are also planning to start BA (Hons) in Political Science from this academic year.

  • Earlier, the Executive Council has approved the proposal of the University of Delhi on 28 February 2017. The move is now allowing St Stephens College to start BA (Hons.) in Political Science from this academic year.
  • St. Stephens Colleges is applying for approval from the respective agencies and authorities. 
  • The final decision will be made after a nod from the funding agency, which is a part of the Delhi government for a dozen colleges, and also from the University Grants Commission (UGC). 
  • The approval is expected to be cleared before the new academic session 2017-18 begins in July.
