Mumbai university becomes the only university in Asia to become a part of an international consortium of eight universities in the world to offer MA in European Cultures.
This will enable students to apply for a unique course at Mumbai University (MU) called Master Cle (Masters in literary European cultures). Students will complete two semesters of the course in Europe.
The two-year programme will offer an integrated MA-MPhil degree, where MU will offer French and Italian besides English language. The enrollment for students will start once the programme is vetted by the UGC and other bodies. The classes are expected to start next year. The course will help those looking to become inter-cultural facilitators for organisations in India and create qualified Indian teachers who can teach these languages here, said Vidya Vencatesan, incharge director of the centre.
