Current Affairs sessions have been introduced as a part of the curriculum. Current Affairs sessions at Kristu Jayanti College (Autonomous) are conducted class wise. Each department has their strategy for implementing these sessions. One hour in a week is allotted for conducting current affairs sessions. The respective class teachers are in charge of conducting these sessions. Students of each class are divided into various groups consisting of 5 to 8 members in each group for successfully conducting the current affairs sessions. Each week, one particular group is assigned the task of imparting news to the students. In each group, different students decide on different topics for presentation. The areas include Science and Technology, Social Issues, Tourism, Entertainment, Local News, National News, International News, Sports News and different occurrences in business and other recent developments. Students have to cover the important events of the previous week under each of the above-mentioned areas and present a report in the class. The chosen topics are presented with the help of Power Point Presentation, Skit, and MCQ’s. After the presentation, the stage is open for discussion. Once all the group members have completed their presentation, a concluding remark is made by the class animator based on the presentation of that particular session. Current affairs report for each month is submitted by the class teachers in the first week of the succeeding month.

The academic year 2020-21 had only online mode of CA sessions. Moreover, due to time constraints in the even semester, not all the departments could conduct the CA sessions.
