Why study Foreign Affairs and Political Economy?
Foreign Affairs involves matters having to do with international relations and with the interests of the home country, i.e. India, in foreign countries. As India’s stature grows in the international community, its foreign affairs will become increasingly important and will have significant implications for every sphere of national policy. Political economy studies the relationship that forms between a nation’s population and its government when public policy is enacted. It is, therefore, the result of the interaction between politics and economy. India’s economy is growing at a consistent pace and the world is eyeing its market potential. Hence studying the interplay between the political system and economy will be crucial in the times ahead.
Why Study Languages?
Studying a language that has strategic importance from an Indian National Security perspective will add another key dimension to an Individual’s skills. This will lead to enhanced employment opportunities. It will bridge the gap between cultures and enable a better understanding of other indigenous perspectives. As technology and globalisation accentuates a world where movement of people and services is becoming increasingly borderless, learning a language will facilitate effective communication
