Azim Premji University has invited applications from fresh and experienced graduates for its various Post Graduate Programmes.
The two-year full time Postgraduate Programmes (M.A. Education, M.A. Development and M.A. Public Policy & Governance) and One year Programme (LL.M. in Law and Development) aim to develop competent and committed professionals who can significantly contribute to the Indian education and social sector.
The University offers a unique learning experience with a curriculum of core courses that provide the foundation, more than 100 interdisciplinary / theme-based electives and flexibility to design your own course through the ‘Independent study’ option, a press release issued by the University said.
Integrated field practice at the University is a unique learning experience with `practicums’ every week, longer exposure visits, field research, internships opportunities and independent field projects. Apart from these, courses in art and craft, music, cinema, literature etc. and other learning opportunities through workshops, seminars, guest lectures and events are organised in the campus, the press release said.
The University has an explicit commitment towards supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds, based on parental education, income, caste, and gender. It provides extensive financial assistance for deserving students through full and part scholarships.
S. Giridhar, Chief Operating Officer, Azim Premji University said, “Given our clear social purpose, it is heartening to see that almost all our graduates chose to work in the education and development sector, many of them in rural areas. They have taken the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to social change on the ground.”
