The 4th year of the 4-year program is a seamless extension of the 3-year program where highly specialized courses will be offered with some of them at the Master level along with opportunities for undertaking interdisciplinary major projects and internships. The 4th year gives students an opportunity to go deeper in their major area of study. The first 3-years will be common to both the 3-year and 4-year programs.
It will be the same as that of the 3-year program.
All students of the 4-year program will be awarded a 4-years Honours degree. The 3-year Honours degree is currently available only in the disciplines of Economics and Computer Science. The minor option is not available in the 3-year Honours degree, while a minor option is available for all majors in the 4-year program except in the following interdisciplinary majors: Design Management, Computer Science and Design, and Data Science and Economics.
Yes. Along with DAP (summer at the end of the 1st year) and SIP (summer at the end of the 2nd year), an additional industry internship in the summer at the end of the 3rd year is mandatory.

In the 4-year undergraduate program, the student is expected to continue to take courses in the area of the specialization in the 4th year and a minor has to be compulsorily earned if there is a minor option available for the corresponding major. However, the FLAME Scholar's Program (FSP) is a post-graduate 1-year diploma that provides opportunities for students to pursue courses of interest spanning a wide canvas of disciplines and it is not mandatory to declare a major/minor in this program. Students should have at least a 3-year degree to be eligible for FSP.

For example, consider a student who is an undergraduate student pursuing Finance as a Major and Applied Mathematics as a Minor. In the 3rd year, the student has three options: a) Graduate with a 3-year degree b) Graduate with a 4-year degree where the same specialization (Finance and Applied Mathematics) has to be studied in the 4th year c) Graduate with a 3-year degree and enroll in FSP. In FSP, the student is free to pursue a set of courses as per a study plan that is arrived at in consultation with his Faculty Advisor. The set of courses should align with the student’s interests and future goals and they are not necessarily restricted to Finance and Applied Mathematics. The student may wish to pursue FSP to acquire greater inter and multi-disciplinary knowledge, for instance in allied fields like Economics.

Students have the opportunity to participate in study-abroad programs with our partner institutions only in the first semester of the 4th year.

IMP is a 4th-year mandatory research project in which a team of students with diverse specialisations work together under the guidance of a faculty member to address an issue or solve a problem that is of relevance to society, technology, business or any other aspect of life. This provides an opportunity for students to apply important skills such as critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, research, teamwork etc along with specialised knowledge and contextual understanding learnt over the previous 3 years and apply it in practical contexts by providing actionable solutions.
In the 4th year, a minor has to be compulsorily earned except in the following interdisciplinary majors: Design Management, Computer Science and Design, and Data Science and Economics.

Foundation Courses allow students to explore various disciplines before zeroing in on their choice of specialization, which is a significant innovation in the Indian context where at the undergraduate-level; students are held to choices they have made during their Higher Secondary Certificate programs. For those students who have clarity about what their area of study might be, the Foundation Courses provide an opportunity to broaden their realms of knowledge. Hence taking Foundation Courses from all the Universes of Knowledge would be essential for each student.
Students have to attend the mandatory courses from each universe but if the student is interested in one particular universe, he can choose extra courses from the universe as open electives in Semester 2.
It is mandatory to choose a major while declaring a minor is optional. A student can also opt for a double major provided they fulfill the pre-requisites for the same.

Unlike the pressure to choose between the streams of Arts, Science or Commerce at the outset, we believe that students should make informed choices after being exposed to a variety of disciplines. The world of work is also inter-disciplinary and requires multiple skill sets. Through an exposure to a variety of courses, students pick up skills across areas that enable them to make connections across all that they learn and a combination of insights is enabled by unique major and minor focus areas
By offering a fourth year option, students can elaborate on what they’ve learned by undertaking more in-depth research through a dissertation project and more intense coursework. This way they are better prepared to undertake specializations at the Masters level or professionally.
FLAME University offers the widest variety of major minor combinations along with tremendous flexibility. By enabling these combinations, students can suit their particular academic needs. These range from specialisations in Science like Applied Mathematics and the forthcoming offering in Computer Science, to Business areas like Finance and Digital Marketing, and also across traditional BA offerings in Psychology and Economics (among many more) and minors in Dance, Design and Music. By also offering interdisciplinary majors in Environmental Studies, International Studies, Literary and Cultural Studies, and Public Policy, students can undertake a course of study that is unavailable in most undergraduate curricula in India. Additionally, we are focused on experiential learning in a global context and support this by a strong portfolio of language offerings in Indian languages and foreign ones like Japanese, Persian and Mandarin.
Through a wide range of offerings, the first year affords a wide degree of choice to introduce students to the many disciplines in academia. Alongside this, though we also emphasise fundamental skills in writing, digital literacy and more that constitute the common core.
