24141Re: Facts about the establishment of Catholicate of east
- Oct 23, 2012Dear Zach George,
First of all I have got this information from one of the current Jacobite Bishop who was my my batch mate at degree level,but joined Vetticka Seminary mid-way and then the HG went to Serampur University for Masters. At that time I met him again and he told me that Udayagiri Seminary's syllabus is different from the courses taught at the university campus. And I have no confirmed facts about whether the Serampur University Senate has changed its policy or not, and if so then when. But I do know UGC has formulated a policy allowing deemed universities to formulate their own policy and curriculum according to the UGC guidelines, and affiliated colleges. Look at the case of Amrita at Ernakulam. The best example is that a reputed university giving degree certificate for another institution with their own syllabus is Jawaharlal Nehru University New Delhi as JNU gives the degree certificate for Indian Defance personnel who joined at Military academy or naval academy, though not for monitory benefit but under Government of India's instruction. And Serampur university is the only recognised university gives degree on theology. So the degree from Serambur university is not a bogus but is a recognized and authenticated one.
