FACULTY

The courses in Sai University will be taught by a top-notch team that has global exposure in education and legal practice. Faculty members are alumni of the finest schools in the world, including Harvard, Stanford, Dartmouth, IIT, Yale Law School, Columbia University, University of Warwick, and more.

UG PROGRAM STRUCTURE

SaiU offers the flexibility to pursue your interests in many combinations. Students may choose their major at any time from admission to the beginning of the second year, and they may switch their choice provided enough time remains to complete their requirements. Students will be expected to take an average of four courses each semester. Each course is the equivalent of four credit-hours.

For a 3-year B.A./B.Sc., a student would take 8 Foundation Courses, 2 Communications Courses, 3 Frontier Courses (this includes 36 Frontier Modules. 12 modules are equivalent to 1 course), 10 courses toward a major (including required major courses and elective major courses), and 4 elective courses (either toward a minor, or any other courses). Internships, research projects, or a thesis may count as courses with approval.

For a 4-year B.Tech., a student would take 8 foundation courses, 2 Communications Courses, 2 Frontier Courses (18 Frontier modules and one required course on computing and data science(C&DS). 12 modules are equivalent to 1 course. This C&DS course is equivalent to 0.5 course), 16 courses toward a major (including required major courses and elective major courses), and 6 elective courses (either toward a minor, or any other courses). Internships, research projects, or a thesis may count as courses with approval.

A student may do a Major in Arts & Sciences and a Minor in Computing & Data Science, or vice versa. With approval of a well-developed proposal, a student may construct an Interdisciplinary Major that combines Arts & Sciences with Computing & Data Science, for example, Digital Arts, Digital Humanities, or Public Health Data Science. A Double Major may also be possible with careful planning and approval.
