The TISS announces the launch of a B.A. programme in Social Sciences from the 2012–2013 academic year. This three-year undergraduate liberal arts programme will focus on the humanistic aspects of Social Sciences blended with Science—the imaginative, creative aspect, and the aspect of rigorous critical thought. This undergraduate programme will create a strong foundation using social, economic, political, cultural, social psychological and environmental theories drawn from all social science disciplines. The students will also study mathematics and take foundational courses in biological, physical and chemical sciences and languages in addition to philosophy of research, research methodology, logic and history.

Key Features

§ The B.A. Social Sciences programme is being offered at the TISS Hyderabad, TISS Guwahati and TISS Tuljapur campuses.

§ A student who successfully completes the credited and non-credited requirements of the three-year (six semester) programme will be awarded a B.A. Social Sciences degree.

§ The graduating students can exercise one of the two options: move out of the TISS campus with the B.A. Degree; or move to any of the Masters programmes offered by the same campus.

§ Students opting to pursue a Master’s Programme in the same TISS campus from where they obtained their Bachelors degree can do so without appearing for an entrance test for any of the Masters degree programme offered in the same TISS campus. Those who wish to shift to another TISS campus must go through admission test for lateral entry to any of the Masters programmes of that campus.

§ A tentative list of Masters degree programmes to become available for the batch graduating in 2015 in each of the campuses is listed below. A framework for allotment to masters programmes will be announced by December 2012.
