New Delhi, India: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will launch three more courses, mass media and film appreciation, geo-spatial practices and hospitality, for 10+2 students. The new courses will be formally launched on July 19 and 20 in New Delhi, India. Students can opt for these courses in Class XI as one of the main five subjects.

“The three new courses have been introduced to help nurture the interest and talent of students. The courses have been designed keeping in mind the demand for skilled manpower in the industries,” said a senior CBSE official.

While mass media will be considered an academic subject, geospatial practices and hospitality will come under the vocational subject category. Initially, some schools in metros like Delhi and Mumbai will offer the courses, which are part of a pilot project of CBSE.
