Tata Institute of Social Sciences offers short online course on Contemporary India

The International Relations Office (IRO) at Tata Institute of Social Science invites international students to attend the online course “Introduction to Contemporary India" held during 16-27 November 2020. The course consists of seven online lectures or webinars delivered by TISS faculty. The ongoing COVID 19 pandemic has brought all mobility programs to a halt; they have been either rescheduled or canceled. The uncertainty of the situation means that it is unclear when programs can be restarted. IRO hopes that potential incoming students can participate in this course and get a sense of what to expect from TISS and India.

It is a non-credited, beginner level courses, giving the participants introduction to various topics related to India and Indian context. It has been specifically designed for students who intend to study in India for both short term or long term basis.
