DU clears sociology course with changes.

THE Delhi University's academic council ( AC) on Tuesday cleared the new syllabi of history and sociology, but not without riders.

The members found the sociology syllabus to be leaning towards " left ideology" and a bit dense for undergraduate students.

The AC has asked the sociology department to review the syllabus and make the suggested changes within the next three months.

The department has been asked to cut down on the number of papers on Marx and introduce Indian social thinkers in the content.

The two courses had been pending because of " noncooperation" from teachers.

" The sociology syllabus appeared biased in content as well as ideology. There was so much literature on Marx even where it was not required. The curriculum seemed to be laid out on a Marxist perspective with his original writings used at 12 to 13 places in the entire content,"

said Sanjay Kumar, academic council member and faculty member, Zakir Husain Postgraduate Evening College.

The history syllabus was also passed with a few suggestions. Surprisingly, despite all the apprehensions, the course curriculum was cleared by the AC and will be taught in colleges from the next session that starts in July.
