About College

During the Eleventh Five- Year Plan, there was a proposal put forward for the created of several more central universities, to tackle the shortage of quality higher education. It would also lessen the financial burden which was being created thanks to the burgeoning of private education. The proposal was then accepted and the decision was taken for the creation of twelve more such central universities, all in different states. These new central universities would come up in the states of – Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Odisha, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and Rajasthan. In addition, three more existing universities in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Uttarakhand were to be upgraded to central university status. Admissions to all these universities is via the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET). Special provisions here are also made for the admission of foreign students. 

The University of South Bihar (UESB) is located in the capital city of the state in Patna. It was established in 2009, as part of sixteen new central universities. While at present the campus is located in Patna, construction is on for the permanent 300- acre campus in Gaya within the same state of Bihar. There are courses here on offer right from the UG level till the doctorate. The academics here is run by the different schools within the campus. There are in total ten schools here. Under each school, there are further departments. One of the biggest schools here is the one for Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. It has three departments within, which are for – Mathematics, Statistics and for Computer Science. Another important one is the School of Physical Sciences with its constituent departments for- Physics and Chemistry. 

In addition to these schools, there also exist several centres of excellence established for the specific task of research. Each centre is partially attached to some school. This helps in mutual collaboration. There are two centres for instance attached to the Earth, Biological and Environmental Sciences. These are the centres for – Biological Sciences and for Environmental Sciences. The Centre for Psychological Sciences is part of the School of Human Sciences. The School of Languages and Literature has multiple sub- centres. One is the Centre for Foreign Languages. Another is the Centre for Indian Languages. Here both Hindi and Urdu are offered. The Centre for Mass Communication and Media falls within the aegis of the School of Media, Arts and Aesthetics. The biggest of all, however is the School of Social Sciences and Policy. Within this, lie centres for- Developmental Studies, Political Studies, Historical Studies & Archaeology, Sociological Studies and Economic Studies and Policy. The Centre for Education is attached to the school by the same name. The other schools here are for – Vocational Studies and for Law & Governance. 

Regular workshops and events are also held at the CUSB. Lectures have been imparted by external experts as well in different areas. A lot of fun events also take place year- round here. These are organized by the specific clubs and committees. There is a Career Counseling and Placement Cell. Another one is for SC and ST. Besides, there are committees for- Central Purchase, Building & Works, Cultural Activities, Games & Sports, Grievance Redressal, Library, Internal Complaint, University Website & Internet and for Institutional Bio- Safety.
