In its course, it includes an inter-disciplinary curriculum so as to encourage holistic approach towards the integrated growth of both, the man and the individual. The course content and suggested readings draw heavily from ideas developed through interdisciplinary works, especially as the assessment includes a compulsory project to be done by every student

The course content and recommended readings draw intensely from thoughts created through works like the evaluation which incorporates the mandatory undertaking to be finished by each understudy. Aside from the activities, a poll-based review was additionally directed to explore the understudies' natural mindfulness and cooperation in the administration of the ecological issues identified with the school grounds and their local location.
