University of Karnataka Dharwad History

The Bombay legislature of the erstwhile Bombay Presidency established the Karnataka University through the Karnataka University Act 1949. It became a statutory University on 1st March 1950. The jurisdiction of the University covers Bagalkot, Belgaum, Bijapur, Dharwad, Gadag, Haveri and Uttar Kannada districts. It has several Post Graduate centres. Karnataka University is offering courses in the faculties of Arts, Commerce, Education, Law, Management, Science and Technology and Social Sciences.

There are 43 PG Departments, 222 teachers and 5000 students ( PG, M. Phil., Ph.D. ). The girl students constitute more than 50% of the total strength, including PG Diploma, M. Phil. and Ph.D. courses. 6% of the students are from outside the state.

To eliminate social exclusion and to promote social justice, seats are reserved for SC / ST, Cat – I, Minorities, OBC and BC categories in accordance with the policy of the State Government.

One seat each is reserved for the children of ex-servicemen, freedom fighters, physically challenged and sportsperson. University of Karnataka has its own Primary & High School ( The University Public School ) since 1964, which meets the practice requirements of the B. Ed. College of Karnataka University.

There are 5 constituent colleges, offering UG courses in science, arts, commerce, fine arts, law and education. Karnataka Arts and Karnataka Science Colleges also offer P.G. Courses. There are 23 hostels in all, including a working women’s hostel and ladies’ hostels.

These provide residential accommodation to 2600 students of UG and PG courses. Over the last 59 years the number of affiliated colleges has increased from a mere 34 to more than 528.

Karnataka University has established 5 PG campuses, at Belgaum ( 178 acres ), Bijapur ( 31 acres ), Haveri ( 42 acres ), Gadag ( 32 acres ) and Karwar ( 6 acres ) which are district headquarters. All campuses are self – contained and are at various stages of development.

They cater to the needs of local people as well as promote specialized studies. For instance, the course on Pulp and Paper Technology is run from the premises of the West Coast Paper Mills, Dandeli ( Uttara Kannada District ).

University of Karnataka provides wide options and choices – 43 PG courses, 4 advanced diplomas and 28 diplomas, 11 certificate courses, 26 M.Phil. and 42 Ph.D. programs. Most of the Departments, on priority basis, incorporate interdisciplinary components in designing their curricula keeping in view the emerging thrust areas.

During the last five years new state of the art technical courses have been introduced to compensate the loss of medical and engineering faculties and the consequent loss of revenue to Karnataka University.

There are several self – financing courses, including an integrated course in Master of Tourism Administration, E – Commerce, M.Com. ( Corporate Secretary ship ), M. Sc. ( Applied Genetics ), M.Sc. ( Biotechnology ), M.Sc. ( Computer Science ), M.Sc. ( Microbiology ), MBA ( CBCS ), MBA ( evening programs ), MBA ( International Business ), MCA, MIM, P.G. Diploma in Bank Management and P.G. Diploma in Risk Management.

Those who are not able to pursue regular UG and PG courses are given an opportunity of higher education through correspondence mode in the Faculties of Arts, Commerce and Social Sciences. University of Karnataka has been attracting students from various countries like UAE, Nigeria, South Africa, Bangladesh, Iran, etc.

The Department of Foreign Languages offers courses in Russian, German and French languages. The chairperson of this Department also functions as International Student Advisor.
