The new coinage in educational approach is not STEM anymore, but STEAM, i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. Students who join the Humanities stream post Class X, with subjects such as History, Geography, Political Science, Sociology, Psychology, Economics and Philosophy, are also sometimes deeply interested in computer studies. These students also tend to be better at languages. That is not surprising since they are often more creative, deductive and better visualizers than students from the pure science group. We have talked about 3 courses popular among Humanities students in India after Class 12. Some of them even take up these courses outside their high school classes in Class 11 itself. All these courses are available in full time, part-time, weekend, and short workshop formats according to subject matter and level of difficulty.
Diploma and Certificate in Multimedia
Multimedia is booming with visual aids getting popular in education and the rising demand for 3D animation. Apart from very good online courses and special multimedia training institutes, many colleges and universities also offer certificate and diploma version of this. Students who complete the course find employment in movies, ads, corporates and also software companies of all types. Everything from toothpaste ads to inside views of a car with detailed automobile architecture require multimedia skills.
Diploma and certificate in Digital Marketing
Digital marketing is one of the hottest employment generating sectors right now. Students go deep into nuances of digital marketing tools from SEO to website management, and find a lot of takers. Not just online businesses, but literally every company needs a digital marketing team now. Despite so many students taking up this course, there’s still enough demand.
Diploma and certificate in Graphic Designing
Graphic designing is a favourite with Humanities students who have an artistic flair. If we think of all digital and web products, portals and apps that we use, we will realise that graphics is an integral part of our lives. There is no lack of scope. But it’s also a highly competitive field, since it is not easy to find students who are technically sound, and artistically proficient.
