Monash University Strategic Partnership Celebration Event 11 April 2022, 2 pm onwards
Tata Institute of Social Sciences celebrated their long-standing partnership with Monash University with the launch of the strategic partnership. Educational ties between Australia and India strengthened with the signing of a strategic partnership between Monash University in 2021.
TISS achieved a milestone today with the launch of dual degree with Monash University on Master of Arts in International Development Practice. The New Education Policy 2020 has allowed Deemed-to-be-Universities like TISS to offer such a unique programme. This Dual Degree will pioneer TISS’s goals towards internationalisation.
This dual degree from TISS in collaboration with Monash University will equip students with skills needed to tackle the political, economic, cultural and ecological challenges leading to extreme poverty, poor health, fragile governance, inequality, environmental vulnerability and human insecurity, particularly in the context of emerging economies. All of these issues require professionals with the practical skills and analytical capacity to build resilience at a national and community level. It will allow students to take courses in two programs and work on different areas through field engagements and classes, both here in India and in Australia, that will bring into contact with professors, classmates, and colleagues from a range of experiences
It gives a platform to students to expand their network and learn within the international framework
This course will be offered in TISS from this academic year 2022.
