More details

“The Syllabus for the new International Relations and Security Studies Program strikes all the right notes. It provides students with a fundamental and theories based understanding. It equips students with the tools to understand the key components of the international security environment ranging from regional dynamics to political economy. It also teaches Research Methodology and perhaps most importantly, it provides foreign language training to better understand several of India’s most important neighbours and partners. It’s a comprehensive and novel approach that bridges the theoretical and the applied aspects of international relations and security studies. Students will emerge fully prepared to confidently serve as the next generation of security policy leaders.”>
