Credit Courses in Public Policy
Our foray into academic practice, through the crafting and delivery of elective seminar courses on public policy and its linkages with various disciplines of study, such as law, business, economics, and media. The seminar courses are crafted to be distinct from traditional learning modules, with cognizance of international trends in policy training, as well as a diverse faculty comprising equally of academicians and practitioners. Designed as a 40 hours module featuring sessions built around a central thematic, the format of our seminar courses purposefully challenges the conventions of a didactic lecture and incorporates participatory elements and working group activities. Our credit courses can be offered at undergraduate or post-graduate level.

”By raising a myriad of thought provoking views that I wasn't aware of, I've been encouraged to look deeper into problems of public policy. The reason I joined this course was to see whether my interest would be piqued in public policy and it definitely has.”~ Anonymous

”The pedagogy and the literature were the best aspect of this course. Pedagogy because it truly followed the Socratic method, thereby allowing each of us to contribute to the entire learning experience. And the literature, not necessarily because all of it was agreeable, but because it introduced us to an alternative set of reasoning to explain market and societal phenomena and an approach to solve society’s problems. It has definitely contributed to me refining and rethinking the way I look at public issues and has broadened my knowledge base to reason well.”~ Aditya Patel

“I really liked how the course built up on several concepts and enabled me to recognise different viewpoints—the 'threading' together of concepts from public choice theory to spontaneous order to a free market enterprise were really appreciated.”~ Tushar Gidwani
