Modular Coursework for Scholars of Direct Ph.D Programme

A key component of the work is to plan, co-ordinate and provide support to the Modular Coursework for Direct Ph.D Scholars. Four courses are offered during the Coursework. These are Social Theory, Philosophical Foundations of Social Science Research, Quantitative Research, Qualitative Research. A unique feature of the modular coursework is that faculty from different schools and centres are involved in teaching the coursework so that scholars are exposed to debates and discourses in various disciplines. Another unique feature of the modular coursework is that apart from coursework, workshops on various topics are conducted during this period so as to enhance the scholars’ perspectives and skills related to various components of research.
