More about the programmes

Development Studies:
This stream addresses questions of "order and change" in a globalizing world. A multi-disciplinary approach is adopted in the first two years of the programme, which sets the base for higher-level understanding. It attempts to include issues related to "development" across countries over a long period of time. At present, the programme is designed to include three thematic modules on i) Gender ii) Science, Technology and Development, and iii) Urbanization. Students will have scope to further specialize in any of these three themes through dissertation and elective courses. Overall, this stream, with a mixture of taught courses and field research/training, attempts to mould students to act as effective agents of social change. Students of this stream are expected to be placed in national and international development institutions and academia.

Economics:
The Economics stream will provide a rigorous training in economic theory and applications and relevant quantitative, statistical and computing skills. Further, an exposure to other areas of inquiry, such as psychology, sociology, philosophy, history, languages, communication and literary skills, the programme will provide the much-needed breadth and multi-disciplinary perspectives. Through dissertation and elective courses, students will have scope to specialize in areas such as education, healthcare, environment, banking, international trade and finance. Students who complete the master's in economics would be suitable for a career in academia, government, industry, and national and international organizations of repute.

English Studies:
The English Studies stream has been designed for students who have the aptitude and the sensitivity for literary and linguistic analyses. This stream will provide a comprehensive understanding of literatures in English with special emphasis on current debates in literary theory, lesser-known literatures and the importance of an interdisciplinary approach. Courses in linguistics will give students an insight into the structure and function of natural languages as a system of cognition and communication. Students will also be exposed to other disciplines such as Economics, Sociology, History, and Philosophy that will widen their horizon and equip them with basic quantitative and analytical skills. Students will have a range of career options open to them from academics and editing to journalism and language training.
