I. GENERAL

The Jawaharlal Nehru University constituted under the Jawaharlal Nehru University Act 1966, (53 of 1966) came into existence in 1969. Its objectives, as defined in the First Schedule of the Act, are as follows:

"The University shall endeavour to promote the principles for which Jawaharlal Nehru worked during his life-time, national integration, social justice, secularism, democratic way of life, international understanding and scientific approach to the problems of society.

Towards this end, the University shall:

(i) foster the composite culture of India and establish such departments or institutions as may be required for the study and development of the languages, arts and culture of India;

(ii) take special measures to facilitate students and teachers from all over India to join the University and participate in its academic programmes;

(iii) promote in the students and teachers an awareness and understanding of the social needs of the country and prepare them for fulfilling such needs;

(iv) make special provision for integrated courses in humanities, science and technology in the educational programmes of the University;

(v) take appropriate measures for promoting interdisciplinary studies in the University;

(vi) establish such departments or institutions as may be necessary for the study of languages, literature and life of foreign countries with a view to inculcating in the students a world perspective and international understanding;

(vii) provide facilities for students and teachers from other countries to participate in the academic programmes and life of the University."

In the light of the above, the approach of the University has been to evolve policies and programmes which will make Jawaharlal Nehru University a distinct addition to the national resources in higher education rather than a mere quantitative expansion of facilities which already exist. The University has identified and is concentrating upon some major academic programmes, which are of relevance to national progress and development.

The basic academic units of the University are not single discipline departments but multi-disciplinary Schools of Studies. A School has been visualised as a community of scholars from disciplines which are linked with each other organically in terms of their subject-matter and methodology as well as in terms of problem areas. Some Schools are made up of a number of Centres which constitute the units operating within the broad framework of a School. A Centre has been defined as a community of scholars irrespective of their disciplines engaged in clearly identified inter-disciplinary programmes of research and teaching.

Unless otherwise specified in the question paper, the JNU being an all India University, the medium of instruction for all programmes of study (barring Languages) is English; and the candidates are advised to write their answers, as far as possible, in English.

In order, however, to facilitate students coming from varying backgrounds with medium of instruction other than English at their Bachelor's/Master's level, the University has in-built facilities for remedial courses in English Language in order to enable them to strengthen their foundation in English as well as to cope up with their academic and research programmes adequately.

The University includes the following Schools of interdisciplinary research and teaching besides some Special Centres of Study:

(i) School of International Studies

(ii) School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies

(iii) School of Social Sciences

(iv) School of Arts and Aesthetics

(v) School of Life Sciences

(vi) School of Environmental Sciences

(vii) School of Computer and Systems Sciences

(viii) School of Physical Sciences

(ix) School of Computational and Integrative Sciences

(x) School of Biotechnology

(xi) Centre for Molecular Medicine

(xii) Centre for Sanskrit Studies

(xiii) Centre for the Study of Law and Governance

(xiv) Centre for Nano Sciences

In matters relating to enrolment, steps have been taken to ensure that students from all parts of the country are able to join the University so that it becomes a national University in the true sense of the word.

The admission policy of the University is governed by the following principles :

(i) to ensure admission of students with academic competence and potentialities of high quality so that its alumni may be able to play their role in the process of national construction and social change in a meaningful manner;

(ii) to ensure that adequate number of students from the under-privileged and socially handicapped sections of our society are admitted to the University; and

(iii) to maintain all-India character of the University by having on its rolls a fair representation of students from different regions of the country especially the backward areas.

Upto 22.5 per cent (15% for SC and 7.5% for ST) of seats are reserved for SC/ST candidates respectively. 3% seats are reserved for Physically Challenged (Handicapped). The SC/ST and Physically Challenged (Handicapped) candidates who have passed the qualifying examination irrespective of their percentage of marks are eligible to appear in the Entrance Examination. 27% seats are reserved for OBC candidates (non creamy layer).

In the light of the objectives of the University as spelt out in the First Schedule of the Act, steps have been taken to ensure that students from outside India, especially from the developing countries join the rolls of the University in adequate number.

II. SCHOOLS AND THEIR PROGRAMMES OF STUDY

1. SCHOOL OF INTERNATIONAL STUDIES

Established in 1955, the School of International Studies is the oldest School of the University. During fifty four years of its existence, the School has established itself as one of the premier institutions in the country for the study of international relations and area studies. The School has made pioneering contributions in promoting the study of international relations as an academic discipline in India and in advancing knowledge and understanding of international affairs in an interdisciplinary perspective. The School is also the first institution in the country to promote “Area Studies” and to develop expertise on various countries and regions of the world. It has also acquired an international reputation as a centre of advanced learning.

To begin with, the School was affiliated to the University of Delhi as the Indian School of International Studies. From September 1961 till the School merged with Jawahalal Nehru University in June 1970, it functioned as a deemed university. Following the merger, the prefix “Indian” was dropped from the name of the School and it became the School of International Studies of the Jawaharlal Nehru University.

For a long time, the academic programmes of the School focused exclusively on research only awarding Ph.D. degree. Soon after the School became a part of the Jawarharlal Nehru University, the M.Phil. curriculum was introduced in 1971-72. In the following academic year 1973- 74, the School started offering a 2 year M.A. (Politics: International Studies) programme. A new and unique M.A. programme in Economics (with specialization in World Economy) was introduced in 1995-96 by the Economics Division of the Centre for International Trade and Development.

Presently, there are more than 100 faculty members in the School. It also has Emeritus Professors and distinguished scholars. Several Chairs have been instituted in the School In the recent years. These are Appadorai Chair, Nelson Mandela Chair, State Bank of India Chair and Chairs in Environmental Law and Space Law. Members of the faculty of the School have contributed to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in International Studies not only through their teaching and research supervision but also by publishing books and articles in journals of highest international repute.

The School holds national and international seminars from time to time on important aspects of area studies, intercountry relations and on themes relating to the study of international relations as an academic discipline.

The School also holds a series of Hriday Nath Kunzru Memorial (Extension) Lectures every year on a theme relating to contemporary international relations. Under an endowment funded by Asia Publishing House, Bombay, it also holds lectures in memory of the great poet and patriot, Sarojini Naidu and invites a distinguished scholar or statesman to deliver the memorial lecture.

The School publishes a quarterly journal "International Studies". Founded in July 1959, this journal has acquired world-wide reputation as a leading Indian academic journal in the field.

The Indo-Pacific as a reason is emerging as the new template of reference since the confluence, interdependence and interface of the Indian and Pacific Oceans are getting strengthened not merely economically but geostrategically as well. The Indo-Pacific, comprising a vast spatial continuum spread from the Indian Ocean all the way up to West Pacific, including the crucial regions such as Southeast Asia and South Pacific, also brings forth India's centrality and its relationship with regions In the Indo- Pacific quite distinctly. First of its kind anywhere in the world, CIPS's intent is to break new ground by focusing its research and teaching on new frontiers of knowledge and bring out newer dimensions of a rapidly changing world. The programme is supported by an extremely competent and dedicated team of faculty committed to high quality teaching and research.

2. SCHOOL OF LANGUAGE, lITERATURE AND CULTURE STUDIES

Language is the key to society and man - how we think, what we think, how we interact with each other and co-exist as a community, all this is determined by language which is not only the means of thought but in fact the thought itself. Learning different languages means learning about cultures and traditions of various people. There are a large number of human natural languages, but we cannot learn all of them. However, if we acquaint ourselves with major languages of the world, we get to know much about human civilisation and culture. The School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies set up with this in mind, imparts instruction in a number of major European and Asian languages such as Arabic spoken in lands where Arabs live, Persian language of Iran an ancient country, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are spoken in the far east of Asia by a large number of people belonging to economically and politically powerful countries. The School also teaches major European languages such as English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish which are the languages basically of Europe but are spoken by large number of people in the Americas. Each of these languages has a significant body of literature, a galaxy of great writers, novelists, poets, story writers. These languages are the carriers of great culture and great philosophy. The student who opts to study a language in the School will, in fact, be studying much more than language. He/she will also be studying the literature, art and philosophy of that Culture.

Training in a major language enables one, at the end of the training, to become a translator, an interpreter, a teacher, an expert or a consultant in multi-media projects. Now that the world is becoming a small place and with the spreading globalisation a person trained in a foreign language is becoming an important person, a culture negotiator in fact.

The courses aim at developing competence and proficiency in spoken as well as written language through audio-visual techniques, language laboratory, films etc.

The courses in civilization and culture give a total overview of the history, geography and cultural institutions of the country concerned. A survey of the country's history, its art and thought are woven into the fabric of the courses to give the students a proper understanding of the relationship between society and its art and thought.

Literature is studied as a specific discipline in itself and students are trained in various methods of literary analysis. Literature is studied in its socio-historical context besides its study as an aesthetic object.

The School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies is the only institution of its kind in the country where facilities for teaching and research in most of the major foreign languages are available. In addition to the several foreign languages, the School also provides for teaching/research in English, Theoretical & Applied Linguistics and a few Indian Languages.

Language studies in the School seek to promote in students a world perspective and a spirit of international cooperation and understanding of different civilizations and cultures.

All the students of the School of Language, Literature & Culture Study who are admitted to B.A. (Hons.) programme from the academic session 2012-13 onwards will be requirfed to take the entrance examintion for admission to M.A. in foreign languages. In other words, this will be applicable to the candidates joined/joining B.A.(Hons.) 1st and/or2nd year programme from the academic session 2012-13 onwards.

3. SCHOOL OF LIFE SCIENCES

The School of Life Sciences (SLS) was established in the year 1970-71. The School offers programs of study leading to M. Sc. and M. Phil. /Ph. D. degrees in Life Sciences. The School was conceptualized as an interdisciplinary programme unifying all the disciplines of biological sciences reflecting essential commonality among them at molecular level in terms of structure,function and evolution. The approaches undertaken by constituent research groups of the School span from in vitro characterization of molecules to physiological studies with whole organisms,from theoretical bioinformatics to experimental recording of neuronal activity in live animals,and in terms of biological systems from bacteria to mammals. The research areas of interest include most of the front line areas of modern biology such as genomics, molecular biology, cell and developmental biology, nucleic acid therapeutics, drug and vaccine targets, cellular immunity, human molecular genetics, molecular parasitology, biology of infectious agents,neurophysiology, microbial biotechnology, photobiology, plant biotechnology, radiation and cancer biology, biochemistry and structural biology. The School has set an example by establishing instruments in a common Central Instruments Facility (CIF) accessible round the clock for all its researchers and also for researchers from outside the University. All the modern equipment required for the cutting edge researches in wide areas are housed in the CIF. In addition, the School also has an Animal House for experimental animals and a Glass House facility for experimental and transgenic plants.

The School of Life Sciences has earned a reputation of running interdisciplinary programs of study at the Master’s level, for students from both biological and physical sciences. This is made possible by offering remedial courses in physical sciences for students coming from the bioscience stream and in elementary biology for students entering biology after their first degree in physical sciences. The M.Sc. Practical laboratories are well equipped to give hands on training to the students in the subjects taught to them in the theory classes. Besides, it is mandatory for all the students to carry out their project work in any laboratory for the last two semesters which motivates them to pursue research in their Ph.D. programme. Graduates completing their degrees at the School are always sought after by research labs in India and abroad and have performed exceptionally well in the universities, institutes and industries. The School has an in-house system of continuous review of its academic programs that allows inclusion of newer areas into research and teaching.

The teaching program comprises of molecular, cellular and organismal biology with emphasis on the mechanisms operating in living systems in a holistic manner. The School offers core/foundation courses and advanced courses for the M. Sc. and M Phil. /Ph. D. students. Courses are constantly updated to reflect new and emerging areas in life sciences. Students are assessed and evaluated throughout the semester by a continuous system of tests, seminars, assignments, mid and end-semester examinations.

The School follows the University-wide format of relative grading of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) on a 10 point scale worked out on the basis of possible 9 points. The M. Sc. course structure also lays emphasis on research and offers students the choice of a research career to be pursued in various institutions within the country and abroad. Several of our M.Sc. students also rejoin SLS to pursue their doctoral studies. Our M. Phil./Ph. D. students are offered pre-Ph. D. courses covering various aspects of advance research in life sciences which prepares them for a better research career thereafter. Largely, due to the nationwide open competition for admission, SLS has always attracted some of the best students of the country.

Active research in several important areas/field is being carried out in the School of Life Sciences which is reflected with many research articles published in peer-reviewed national and international journals of repute. The School has consistently maintained a level of productivity in terms of publications in reputed peer reviewed journals and books. Over 1, 500 papers have been authored by the faculty of the school since its inception. Over 450 students of the School have been awarded Ph.D. degree. Last but not the least, our faculty members have been honoured with recognitions like being members of the Planning Commission, Padma awards, elected Fellows of various Academies, Bhatnagar Award, Birla Award, Third World Academy Award, Ranbaxy Award, J.C. Bose Award, Bhasin award and many others.

The School continues to attract core funding from the University Grants Commission (UGC) under the Centre for Advanced Study (CAS) in “Cell and Molecular Biology” and the University with Potential for Excellence (UPOE) programs. It has also received support from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) in the form of FIST-I and FIST-II programs. Individual faculty members are also supported by research grants from the national and international funding agencies such as the UGC, DST, Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), The European Union, the Wellcome Trust (UK), Swiss Development, USDA etc.

(B)CENTRES OF THE SCHOOL

1. Centre for Economic Studies and Planning

The Centre has established itself as a premier Centre for teaching and research in Economics. The richness of the teaching and research programmes are reflected by the structure of the courses and the research output both of the faculty and the students. The faculty has a distinguished record of publications of monographs, books and articles.

A distinctive feature of the Centre is the easy accessibility of its faculty to the students. The emphasis is on learning and not just on memorizing. Students have to write term papers, give presentations, solve problems, appear in open book examinations, etc. In this process there is continuous evaluation.

(a) M.Phil./Ph.D.: M.Phil./Ph.D. programme at the Centre consists of course work and a dissertation for M.Phil. and a thesis for Ph.D. students. For the M.Phil. programme, of the four courses required to be completed in two semesters, one must be chosen from either Methods of Economic Analysis or Statistical and Econometric Methods. The other three courses are chosen from a range of optional courses offered each year. In each course, selected topics are pursued in depth with a view to introduce the students to analytical issues and the current state of research in the subject. Links are thereby sought to be developed between the course work and the research required for the dissertation which is to be written in the second year of the M.Phil. programme.

The course work for M.Phil. consists of a combination of lectures, the preparation and presentation of seminar papers and participation in workshops on work in progress. This range of academic activities enables students to understand the inherent link between theory and empirical investigations in research work.

M.Phil./Ph.D. candidates seeking admission to the Centre are required to bring with them a synopsis of their research theme, indicating its scope, plan and viability.

(b) M.A.: The Centre offers M.A. degree in Economics. The focus of the M.A. Programme is two-fold: (i) to acquaint the students with the theoretical foundations of, and the basic idea in the main branches of Economics from the perspective of alternative theoretical approaches, and (ii) to enable the students to relate their analytical understanding of the subject to the actual experiences of economies and to interpret the problems of change in a historical perspective. Consequently, special emphasis is placed on the study of problems of development in the context of the Indian economy. The M.A. programme consists of 16 courses which are taught

over four semesters: Of these, 8 courses are compulsory, made up of 7 theoretical and tool courses and 1 course on the Indian economy, while the remaining 8 courses are optional, with students choosing from a wide range of courses offered each year. One of the new experiences that the M.A. students gain is writing term papers as part of the course requirement in various courses. It is through these that they are introduced to the notion of research.

2. Centre for Historical Studies

Recognised as a Centre for Advanced Studies by the UGC, The Centre for Historical Studies is a premier centre of teaching and research in history within India. It is also one ot the oldest centres in the School of Social Sciences having launched its programme of Post Graduate Studies in 1970 under the guidance of eminent historians like Professors S. Gopal, Romila Thapar, Bipan Chandra and Satish Chandra. A major focus of the Centre continues to be on cutting-edge research that can expand the frontiers of the discipline.

(a) Direct Admission to Ph.D. programme

Those who wish to be admitted to this programme need to have an M.Phil. degree with a dissertation from a recognized institution or at least two published research papers, the final selection into this programme is done on the basis of an interview by the faculty.

(b) M.Phil./Ph.D.

The Centre focuses its teaching and research on Ancient, Medieval, Modern and Contemporary History with particular emphasis on the study of economic, social and cultural changes. Students who learn to handle different types of source material are encouraged to work on themes that cut across these chronological divides.

Ancient History: In the training provided to students special emphasis is laid on the study of languages and on using different categories of source materials–literary, epigraphic, numismatic and archaeological. It seeks to encourage study and research on the evolution of social structure, political process, agrarian relations, urbanization, trade and trading groups, inter-relationship of religion and society and perspectives on Indian history provided by historical geography.

Medieval History: Study and Research includes structure and change in medieval Indian Society, state systems, agrarian development, growth of trade and commerce, ideology and culture. Emphasis is also given to the study of two major transitions in Indian History–from ancient to medieval and from medieval to colonial regimes, through a reconstruction of structural continuities and cleavages encompassing the institutional, technological, social, economic and ideological development.

Modern History: Apart from the study of social changes and evolution of agrarian, industrial and class structures, emphasis is placed on the study of colonialism in its economic, political and cultural dimensions, nationalism and the national movement, peasant, trade union and tribal movements, the growth of left-wing parties and groups and developments in the cultural, intellectual and ideological fields.

Page:20

Contemporary History: In this field an effort is made to situate the evolution of contemporary developments, particularly those since World War II, in a long term historical context. Special attention is given to studying the linkages between different aspects of contemporary society viz., the economy, polity, culture, environment, etc., in a holistic manner, i.e. not compartmentalised into the relatively strict boundaries of disciplines such as political science, economics or sociology. Also, an attempt is made to conduct the above studies in a comparative perspective, taking into account the experience of different countries.

The M.Phil. programme of the Centre is intended to introduce the students to research in history through a research methodology course and dissertation. Efforts are made to fill gaps in the student’s knowledge of the period or area of history with lectures as well as seminar courses in the first year. The dissertation will have to be submitted on the basis of primary research work undertaken by the student at the end of the two year programme.

At the time of the viva-voce, M.Phil./Ph.D. candidates should come with 1000 word synopsis of their research proposal (six copies). In the interview, they will be asked questions regarding their proposal, primary sources and some of the key books read by them in their M.A. course.

Candidates applying for M.Phil./Ph.D. (History) programme are allowed to exercise only one option, i.e., Ancient History; or Medieval History; or Modern Indian History, and the option so exercised must be clearly mentioned in the appropriate column in the Application Form as well as on the top of the answerbook supplied to the candidates in the Examination Hall. Candidates may please note that the answerbooks carrying more than one option will be considered invalid.

Promotion from M.Phil. to Ph.D. is not automatic and is as per the provisions of relevant ordinance.

(c) M.A. in History

Students entering the Centre are offered a flexible programme while specialising in (1) Ancient History, or (2) Medieval History, or (3) Modern and Contemporary History. Along with courses in their specialisation, students are required to offer a set of common courses designed to survey (a) historiography and historical methods, and (b) broad patterns of socio-economic and political formations and structural changes through a series of three courses covering the Ancient, Medieval and Modern periods. In addition, students will be required to offer at least two courses on histories of countries other than India.

Apart from these compulsory courses, a large part of the progrmme is available as"Open Options", wherein the students may choose courses in areas other than that of one's specialization including (1) other periods of Indian history, and (2) courses in other Centres(with permission of the Faculty) in disciplines relevant to the student's area of interest and specialization. Students are strongly advised to do a language course relevant to their area of specialisation.

With the exception of two seminar courses in the fourth semester of the M.A. Programme, all courses offered by a student are lecture courses. In lecture courses fifty per cent of the evaluation depends on a student's performance in examination or tutorials during a semester, and fifty percent on performance in the endsemester examination. The programme expects a good deal of independent writing by students as part of the curriculum. The seminar courses initiate students into the exciting and painstaking world of research, wherein they are required to present an original paper on the basis of an investigation of primary sources.

The candidates must make their specific choice of specialisation, i.e. (Ancient History or Medieval History or Modern Indian History) with care; it is not possible to change from one stream to another.

Candidates applying for M.A. (History) programme are allowed to exercise only one option, i.e., Ancient History; or Medieval History; or Modern Indian History, and the option so exercised must be clearly mentioned at appropriate column in the Application Form as well as on the top of the answer-book supplied to the candidates in the Examination Hall. Candidates may please note that the answer-books carrying more than one option will be considered invalid.

No application for a second M.A. at the Centre for Historical Studies will be entertained from those who have completed an M.A. degree from the same Centre even if the period of specialization is different.

Candidates who qualify are requested to register at the earliest so that they can take full advantage of the tutorial system. Classes normally begin from the end of July. Students are required to check with the CHS office for specific dates. Students are also requested to attend the Orientation Meeting with the Faculty.

5. Centre of Social Medicine & Community Health

The Centre of Social Medicine and Community Health (CSMCH) was established in order to shape and provide academic content to the discipline of public health, making it relevant to the situation in India. It was recognised that the discipline of Preventive and Social Medicine needed a paradigm shift that could only be provided if this Centre was set up outside the confines of a medical college.

Over the past 30 years, the Centre has acquired vast experience in evolving problem-oriented interdisciplinary academic programmes in public health, in addition to building an active research base. At the same time, efforts have also been made at establishing institutional links with various academic, research, policy-making and non-governmental organisations.

Under the overall objective of creating academic programmes for making health services meaningful to the people of the country, the Centre has set out as its objective the task of understanding the health problems and health needs of the mass of Indian people. The endeavour is to understand how health problems are shaped by socio-economic factors and to examine the social structure itself, to delineate the structural constraints that contour the scope of health interventions. The task requires an inter-disciplinary approach involving disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, psychology, economics, history, politics, demography, statistics and public administration, apart from the disciplines that are traditionally included in public health. It was for this reason that the Centre was located in the School of Social Sciences. Epidemiology, health service structure, health programme design, health systems research and health policy analysis are important foci for all the programmes.

The Centre offers the following academic programmes:

1. M.Phil/Ph.D. in Social Sciences in Health. The eligibility criterion for admission is a Masters degree in social sciences or other disciplines allied to public health (as mentioned on page 31).

Page:23

2. Master of Public Health (M.P.H./ Ph.D. in Public Health). The eligibility criteria for admission are MBBS or MSc (Nursing) with one year's experience.

3. Direct Ph.D. for both streams.

Both M.Phil and MPH are spread over four semesters (2 years). M.Phil students are required to undertake two semesters of course work followed by a dissertation. The MPH students are required to undertake three semesters of course work. They are additionally required to conduct a field study during the inter semester breaks and to be completed in the fourth semester. The successful completion of the prescribed course work and dissertation/fieldstudy will lead to the award of M.Phil. or M.P.H. degree. The candidates who have secured the prescribed grades will be eligible for registration to the Ph.D. programme. In addition to the above programmes, the Centre also admits candidates to the Ph.D. programme directly as per criteria mentioned in page 29. The Centre may prescribe courses to the candidates admitted under the direct Ph.D. programme.

Courses in public health cover areas such as organization of health programmes, epidemiology, nutrition, maternal and child health, communicable diseases, family planning, research methodology, operations research etc. Courses in social sciences cover concepts and methods relevant for public helath within an interdisciplinary perspective.

During the second semester students are offered a number of optional courses. They also get an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the current issues in public health through an intensive journal club in the second semester. All students are exposed to group field work in both urban and rural areas as a part of their course work.

8. Centre for Philosophy

The Centre was set up in 1999 in the School of Social Sciences. For a long time, the School and the University had felt the urgent need for an independent Centre for Philosophy. This was driven by the understanding that Philosophy must have a central place in an institution of higher learning and research. Further, that an engagement with Philosophy would strengthen the ongoing research in the various fields of knowledge in the University. It was this concern that led to the creation of the Centre for Philosophy in the School of Social Sciences.

The academic programmes of the Centre are intended to provide students with a deeper and more rigorous foundation in the discipline in Philosophy while simultaneously encouraging an engagement with substantive issues and contemporary concerns. The teaching and research work is designed to train students to read and engage critically with original

philosophical texts, both classical and contemporary, with a high degree of methodological awareness; and to reflect systematically on concepts and problems central to Philosophy. The primary purpose of this is to create a body of scholarly work that can yield newer and richer reflections on philosophical problems and debates. The Centre would like to encourage research students to study issues and concerns in Philosophy cutting across diverse traditions and narrow disciplinary boundaries. It would also like students to move from exegesis to a problem-oriented study where philosophical reflection addresses concerns of present day society and polity.

The Centre offers a Direct admission to Ph.D. programme, M.Phil./Ph.D. and M.A. programme.

(i) Direct Admission to Ph.D. Programme: The Centre welcomes applications in all major areas of Philosophy, such as, Ethics, Epistemology, Metaphysics, Legal and Moral Philosophy, Social and Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Action, Philosophical Psychology, Logic, Philosophy of Social Sciences, and History of Ideas.

The candidate at the time of viva-voce i s expected to bring a research proposal of about 1500-2000 words.

(ii) M.Phil/Ph.D.: The M.Phil. programame carries a total of 24 credits - 16 credits for the course work and 8 credits for the Dissertation. The course work consists of 2 compulsory papers of 4 credits each and 2 optional papers, also of 4 credits each. Every students is required to take two compulsory courses in the first semester of the programme, and they must successfully complete the entire course work in the first year of admission.

The two compulsory courses are: (i) Concepts in Philosophy, and (ii) Philosophical Methods. The aim of these courses is to critically engage with some of the core concepts of philosophy and to systematically introduce students to methods of philosophical enquiry by an in depth study of identified essential texts in Philosophy. In addition to this, the Centre offers a range of optional papers in the fields of Ethics and Moral Philosophy, Epistemology and Metaphysics, Philosophy of Action, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Culture, Philosophy of Mind and Consciousness, Philosophy of Social Science Studies in Analytical Philosophy, and Phenomenology and Existentialism. The choice of the two optional courses will be determined by the research interest and field of specialization selected by the student.

The course work for M.Phil. will consist of a combination of lectures, preparation and presentations of seminar papers, and participation in discussions on work in progress.

The candidate at the time of viva-voce is expected to bring a research proposal of about 1000-1500 words.

(iii) M.A. programme:As a degree in Philosophy, the M.A. Programme of the Center focuses on the study of

Page:25

the distinctive character of philosophical inquiry, debates in metaphysics, epistemology, logic and ethics. Since philosophical inquiry is not isolated but rooted in the basic questions of other academic disciplines and social life, students will be encouraged to comprehend the interdisciplinary and foundational character of philosophical studies. They will also be trained to identify and appreciate the sources of philosophical questions and puzzles in our reflections on language, thought, knowledge and values.

The programme will review and attempt to overcome the received binaries and dichotomies such as study of philosophy in terms of geographical and civilizational divisions, intra-disciplinary segregations like analytic philosophy and phenomenology, metaphysics and epistemology, moral and social philosophy, etc.

The programme aims to develop philosophical aptitude and analytical skills among the students through a rigorous training. An intensive study of philosophical texts for a critical appraisal of concepts and arguments used by philosophers, and writing of philosophical essays will be an integral part of the programme.

The two year M.A Programme consists of 16 courses with 10 compulsory and 06 Optional courses of 04 credits each. These are Philosophical Studies: Problems and Perspectives; Epistemology and Metaphysics: Issues and Problems of Knowing and Being; Moral and Social Philosophy; Logic and Scientific Methods; Philosophy of Social Sciences; Philosophy of Language; Readings in 20th Century Indian Philosophy, Readings in Analytic Philosophy and Phenomenology; Seminar Course: Reading a Philosopher and Seminar Course: Project on a Philosophical Theme. Out of the 06 optional courses at least 04 should be chosen from the courses offered by the Centre.

All courses are lecture and seminar based. Students are required to write term papers/ tutorial assignments and give seminar presentations in each course. 50% of the grade depends on the student’s performance in mid semester assignments and the remaining 50% is awarded on the basis of their performance in the end semester examination.

9. Zakir Husain Centre for Educational Studies

The Centre offers a programme of study leading to the degree of M.Phil. in Educational Studies and Ph.D. in Sociology of Education, Social Psychology of Education, History of Education and Economics of Education. The Centre focuses on the study of education from social science perspectives. Its teaching and research programmes are structured around social science disciplines of Economics, History, Sociology and Psychology. Accordingly, there are four streams of research and the curriculum for the M.Phil./Ph.D. programme is geared around them.

Economics of Education: Students are introduced to economic issues in education and a theoretical foundation for handling and analyzing of problems

Related to human resource development. Wider issues of education from the development economics perspective receive special attention. Other topics include investment decisions in education, financing of education, social choice dilemmas, international labour market, educational policy issues, migration of knowledge, workers, trade in education services and WTO, etc.

History of Education: The research programme on the history of education at the Centre has evolved along three distinct axes. The first has to do with the development and emergence of systems of education in India focusing on questions of the access to education from the perspectives of gender studies, and considerations of equity and social justice in the South Asian context. The second dimension has to do with the evolution of the system of higher education, again from the eve of colonialism into contemporary times. The focus is on the social history of higher education, with an emphasis on issues of the globalization and naturalization of models of the university, and the transformation of knowledge ideals in changing political and socio-economic contexts. The attempt is to study historically the impact of the globalization of the university, on the one hand and the formation of academic disciplines within the university and research institutes on the other. And finally, a third area has to do with the history of science and technology in India, where in addition to looking at the philosophical, and social dimensions of the history of science education, research also focuses upon contexts, policies, and strategies of science communication and popularization.

Social Psychology of Education: The co-constitutive nature of cultural-historical processes and the psychological phenomena is problematized. The existing theoretical traditions within Psychology and their transformative roles in bringing about changes in the educational processes are examined. Areas such as cultural roots of learning with specific emphasis on language and mathematics learning, everyday and scientific cognition, personality, motivation, social cognition, inter-group dynamics and identity processes etc. and their implications for curricular and pedagogic practices in a multicultural-multilingual society are analysed.

Sociology of Education: Special emphasis is placed on issues relating to diversity equity and social justice; structure and processes of schooling and higher education; social and educational policy, social impact of globalization and privatization of the educational systems, and other contemporary concerns of education in the ‘developing’ world. Basic concepts and approaches in sociology, linkages of education with socialization, stratification, social change and mobility, social and educational inequality, etc. are some of the areas discussed from multiple theoretical standpoints in the sociology of education. Classroom teaching focuses on a comparative analysis of diverse social contexts within India and also other countries.

11. Centre for the study of Discrimination and Exclusion(CSDE)

The Centre for the study of discrimination and exclusion was initially launched in 2005 as a programme to document and analyse discrimination and exclusion in Indian society. Gradually it was expanded to study the structures and processes of exclusion and discrimination. The focus was primarily on discrimination and exclusion on the basis of caste, tribe and religion that ‘locked out’ social groups from full participation in the economic, social, political and cultural life of Indian society. It was proposed that such a centre would be able to bring together the comparative and interdisciplinary framework necessary for a teaching and research programme that would study discrimination and exclusion given its diverse structural roots and varied forms and manifestations in different social and economic spheres. Presently the thrust of the centre is on study of scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and minorities keeping in mind intersectionalities such as class, gender, region and so on in Indian society.

Page:27

During the last seven years, the CSDE has expanded its institutional base and resources by taking advantage of the UGC Scheme for the establishment of Centres for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy (CSSEIP). The Centre focuses on a number of thematic issues such as histories from the margins; different aspects of discrimination and social exclusion in relation to agrarian change and transformations; Nations and borders and; minorities.

Currently, the Centre offers only Direct Ph.D programme. The Centre welcomes applications in all major areas of Social Sciences. They should demonstrate their academic capability by preparing a well developed research proposal drawing out a specific theme, statement of the problem, literature review and relevant research methodology. They should have high quality published work in any area of Social Science.

12. Centre for Informal Sector and Labour Studies

Centre for Informal Sector and Labour Studies is one of the newly created (as part of the XI Five Year Plan) centres of the School of Social Sciences. Its objective is to study the conditions of life and work of the working people of the country, which includes non-agricultural workers, agricultural labourers, peasants, fishermen, craftsmen etc. Since the overwhelming bulk of the working people are located in what is called the "Informal Sector", a focus on the Informal Sector becomes inherent to the stated objective of the Centre. This objective, being quite broad, makes the proposed Centre necessarily inter-disciplinary, since any study of the life of the working people must draw upon a whole range of disciplines: history, economics, political studies, sociology and others.

Students from all major social science disciplines (Political Science, History, Sociology, Anthropology and Economics) can apply for admission to this programme. They will be expected to have a well developed research proposal which focuses on issues related to informal sector and labour. They also need

to be aware of the available literature in their proposed research areas. However, the Ph.D. admission is not automatic. It is decided case by case depending on the strength, merit. research capacity and research orientation of the candidate applying for Ph.D. admission. After the shortlisting of the application based on the fulfilllment of the entry requirements and the merit of research proposal submitted (of about 2000 words) the candidates will be expected to appear for an interview. The final selection will be based on the interview.

13. Centre for Media Studies

The Centre for Media Studies (CMS) aims to emerge as a prime academic location for the development of critical understanding about media and its engagement with society, polity and economy in India.

Envisaged primarily as a centre for research and academic study. It concentrates on developing a critical understanding of the role of the media in contemporary times. The media's functioning,and its influence and impact on contemporary society, polity, economy and culture are primary areas of its research concerns.

CMS promotes inter-disciplinary approaches to study and assess the evolution, role relevance and impact of media in India towards this purpose, it engages closely with experts working in this field in allied schools and institutions. Taking account of the roles that the structures of the media, as well as the ways in which these structures are embedded in society, play in defining its functions of legitimation and critique, the areas with which the Centre will engage in research and teaching activities include:

1) Structure, ownerships and corporatization

2) Interface between media, politics, society and technology

3) Linguistic and regional diversities

4) Media and democratization

5) Media, law and regulation

The study of governance, in its various forms and at different sites is central to several contemporary issues: reform of public institutions and public law; the creation and establishment of procedures and rules that lead to greater efficiency, transparency, and accountablility; and the challenge of making governance more inclusive and participatory through the strengthening of democracy and civil society. The program’s interdisciplinary focus is distinctive from mainstream social science approaches to governance or law in its attempt to explore how practices of law and governance are embedded in political, economic, social and historical processes; how practices of governance are dispersed over various sites ranging from government, bureaucracy, judiciary, community to the family, the sociolegal processes that deter or provide access to justice; and notions of governmentality, sovereignty and rights in specific politico-jural regimes. While the Centre’s academic programme produces scholarly research on law and governance, it also seeks to translate theory into practices of governance by initiating debate, sharing research and encouraging dialogue between the academia, government, civil society and NGOs at local, national and global levels. The ongoing research by the faculty and research students, a working paper series published by CSLG, an active seminar program and annual lectures by distinguished guests mark the other activities of the Centre. CSLG offers an M.Phil./Ph.D. program as well as direct admission to Ph.D. programme.

The main research foci of the Centre are as follows:

Globalisation and governance: institutions of global governance, multilateral institutions, international trade and environmental regimes, and their impact on national sovereignty.

Democracy and civil society: the role of civil society in deepening democracy and in the processes of governance; accountability and legitimacy of governing institutions; mapping civil society in India; citizenship and human rights.

State institutions and governance: multi-layered governance, including local governance; civil service reform and new public management; traditional and modern institutions for self-governance, conflictresolution and the management of natural resources.

Legal framework for development: legal institutions as social and cultural institutions; the political economy of law making; the economic efficiency and social principles underlying legal reasoning; the impact of the legal framework and legal processes on the rights, entitlements and social opportunities of citizens; the rule of law, access to justice; the relationship between the public and the private sector (including privatization, regulatory regimes and deregulation) relationship between legal and economic development.

(A) PROGRAMMES OF STUDY:

The Centre offers Direct admission to Ph.D. programme as also an M.Phil./Ph.D. Programme.

(i) Direct Admission to Ph.D. Programme: Given its inter-disciplinary orientation, the Centre welcomes applications from scholars with M.Phil. degrees in Political Science, Economics, Sociology, and Law. Those who do not have an M.Phil. degree should provide evidence of equivalent published work in the intended area of specialisation.

(ii) M.Phil./Ph.D. Programme in Law and Governance: The objectives of the M.Phil./Ph.D. Programme in Law and Governance include the following::

* To prepare candidates for doctoral research in public policy and socio-legal research that is not limited by uni-disciplinary training.

* To provide an inter-disciplinary perspective on the study of law and governance, by introducing the basic concepts, debates and the now extensive literature on governance and legal issues, emanating from the disciplines of political science, economics, public administration/public policy, sociology and jurisprudence.

* To equip students with the skills necessary to undertake research in areas of public policy, including a special focus on the legal implications of these issues, by developing their expertise in these diverse disciplinary areas, and so to enable a more complex and multi-faceted approach to issues of governance, public policy and law.

* To acquaint the qualified practitioner – policy-maker, civil servant, lawyer or NGO worker --with the major issues in this area.

The M.Phil. programme is a two-year/four-semester programme of study from which students may move on to the doctoral programme provided they meet the minimum grade requirements laid down by the University. The M.Phil. programme consists of 3 compulsory courses; 3 optional courses; and a dissertation. Each course carries 3 credits, and the course requirements are to be completed in the first two semesters of the programme. The dissertation carries 10 credits and is to be completed by the end of the fourth semester.

The notable features of the M.Phil. Programme are:

* its multi-disciplinary orientation in both course design and teaching plan;

* its substantive academic content;

* its distinctiveness when compared to available courses in other Indian Universities; and

* its coherence as a programme of study with a policy-orientation.

Please note that option(s) once excercised shall be final and no change of option(s) shall be allowed. The preference wise option given by you at the time of filling in the application form will be kept in view e.g. a candidate who has been selected for a discipline falling under higher preference will have no claim for other preferences of the same level of programme.

For Direct Admission to Ph.D. programme and admission of JRF holders to M.Phil./PH.D., Pre-Ph.D./Ph.D. programmes in Science Schools, the candidates are required to fill in separate Application Form for each Field of Study.
