Credit Courses in Public Policy
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:
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.
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.
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.

”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 fact that the course allowed us to speak our minds and raise questions, and clarify our confusions at each step was a new experience. I have never participated this much in a course, and it gave me the confidence to out forth my understanding and build a strong case by looking at evidence. The presence of a course facilitator to guide us in between lectures was great!~ Banani Acharya

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.~ Satyashoova Sahu
