New Delhi

Delhi University is likely to include  'Facebook Post Writing' as part of skill enhancement course.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, DU now wants its English Literature students to master the art of writing Facebook posts. The report says that this will not just be about 'likes', little check-ins and 'feelings' but will comprise serious "academic writing".

"We want to give students every option possible, such as academic and professional writing of different kinds. We have noticed that students have had to go outside the university to acquire such skills, at some cost of their own," said Christel Devadawson, Head of the English Department at Delhi University.

The report comes  after the department was criticised by many for introducing Indian author Chetan Bhagat's novel Five Point Someone as a part of the curriculum's 'Popular Literature'.
