It’s been over a decade now and the vogue of ‘add-on’ certificate courses offered at Delhi University’s Colleges and Centres still dominates. The trend started with just couple of course at S.G.T.B. Khalsa College and Miranda House around 2006. Today, more than half-a-dozen of DU Colleges offers vocational and skill-based certificate courses that are open to all (with no concerns over class 12th marks).
With limited seats available in full-time regular courses, the students aspiring to study in DU can also consider to enroll in these pocket-friendly certificate courses which hold market value. The classes for such certificate courses are usually held after regular college hours making it convenient for a full-time student from DU or other universities to pursue the certificate courses simultaneously.
From becoming an actor, filmmaker, photographer to a digital marketing expert, DU has got it all. Popular courses to enroll are at Hansraj College that offers add-on courses in Acting, Filmmaking, Mass Communication, Advertising, Radio Jockeying, Anchoring & Television Journalism.
Next in the league are Jesus & Mary College (JMC), Bharati College & Kalindi College that offers courses in Media Studies, Advertising & Marketing, Photography, Films & TV Production, Direction and Photojournalism. Except at JMC, all other colleges programs are co-educational in natures.
Other skill based programs offered by Campus of Open Learning includes Digital & Social Media Marketing, Theatre Acting, Fine Arts, Interior Design, Graphic Design and Animation (2D & 3D).
