The Centre for Development Studies (CDS) as a multi-disciplinary centre, aims to equip the students with critical, analytical and applied skills that they use in future either as academicians or as development practitioners. It provides opportunities to students to critically examine a relevant body of knowledge (theoretical perspectives and approaches) and current debates and learn research methods (qualitative and quantitative). Practicum, field-work, and internship experiences facilitate learning the process of development, policy planning and practicum in the real life settings. The students are exposed to the complex process of development which requires consideration of the specifics of local situations and circumstances along the global interactions and influences. The academic programmes enhance the insightful understanding and interplay of social, cultural, ecological, political, and economic variables in the development process which is required to constructively deal with inequitable outcomes of the development.


M.A. Development Studies Programme


The two year (four semesters) Post Graduate Programme prepares students for higher research degree as well as for professional careers in the area of both governmental and nongovernmental organisations. In addition to regular course work and research, an internship directly related to their studies provides an opportunity to integrate theory with practice. This component of the course allows students to engage with national and international development agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organisations, policy think tank, corporate organisations, and research/training institutions. The internship programme imparts field specific skills among the students, enabling them to understand development issues comprehensively. They are also encouraged to organise/participate in the programmes based cultural activities, panel discussions on development issues and job placement opportunities.
