Prof. Farhana Ibrahim, Head, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Delhi, said, “The new MA program explores aspects of contemporaneity and interdisciplinarity across disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Its location at IIT Delhi gives it a unique vantage point to generate a new corpus of knowledge, populate new kinds of archives, and develop critical methodologies to give new directions to humanities and social science research from the global south.”

“The program offers a unique opportunity for students to explore courses across traditional disciplines, and to forge new synergies across existing Master’s programs offered by the Department, viz. Cognitive Science and Economics,” Prof. Ibrahim added.

The program will train and equip students for a variety of fields, including research, academia, social work, think tanks, media and policymaking, among others, in government and non-governmental organisations, research institutes, social entrepreneurship organizations, etc.

Graduates from the MA program will also be eligible to join the doctoral programs offered by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at IIT Delhi, or other international doctoral programs.
