Co-curricular Courses



Co-curricular courses are designed to enhance the main academic curriculum. The visual arts, performing arts and languages are essential elements of the complete education we hope to provide at Ashoka. The arts and languages offer us an expressive voice, and a knowledge of and sensitivity to them can be potentially humanizing. Co-curricular courses at Ashoka are both practical and theoretical. Rather than purely imparting training, they have been conceived as a means to engage with various art forms.


Students have to take 2 Co-Curricular Courses as part of their graduation requirements; in any semester, a student can take a maximum of 1 Co-Curricular Course.
