Credit Courses in Public Policy

The modules currently offered under our credit courses on public policy are Economics & Public Policy; Law & Public Policy; Media & Public Policy among others.

The credit course in Public policy looks at the myriad challenges in policy making and implementation, and examines feasible alternatives involving adjusting and course-correction. With a pool of a diverse faculty comprising of academicians and practitioners, our credit courses involve a confluence of incisive analysis of social issues plaguing our society and robust, evidence driven solutions to bring about changes. Greater recognition of diversity and importance of analyzing processes, context, and possible outcomes is stressed upon. Sub national and transnational forces shaping the way we look at institutions and their role is deliberated. The courses offer better understanding of policies framed by governments, and how they change over time.

Modules that we offer:

Law and Public Policy (LPP)

This course looks at the history of legal process with an understanding of various legal concepts. The intersection of the fields of law and economics helps to both define justice in terms of efficiency, and to predict the effects of legal rules, and is an excellent tool to analyze laws.

Economics and Public Policy (EPP)

Offering a more holistic approach to the study of economic theory, this module explores basic economic theory in Keynesian, as well as the Chicago and Austrian Economic schools of thought. The intersection of economics and public policy helps to understand both--the role policy plays in creating a conducive environment for economic growth, and the role individuals play in shaping policy.

Business and Public Policy (BPP)

While Business Studies courses in India sufficiently explore economic and management concepts, our module shifts focus to the policy landscape that examines how businesses are affected by policy decisions and the role governments in a market-based economy.

Past Programs

”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.”

The importance ascribed to data driven and evidence-based policy-making was refreshing. The use of scientific method in understanding social sciences in order to evaluate varying course of action was the best aspect of the course. I appreciate that when arguments in favour of particular points were raised on the basis of evidence rather than purely value-based considerations. Most notably, in lectures by Mr. Ashwin Mahesh and Mr. Shubho Roy. The course was much more discursive than most classes on law; emphasis on empirical nature of the course and a healthy mix of theory and practice based inputs made it different from regular classes.

The practical knowledge and information this course introduced me to and the analysis of public policy going beyond the black letter of the law was a great tool to evaluate policy prescriptions going forward. Though I would have liked more focus on research methodologies, I enjoyed that our faculty comprised of people who had experience researching and teaching in different fields, and those who are actively engaged in policy-making. The classes were discussion and not lecture-oriented, which made them engaging.
