TISS SCHOOL OF GENDER STUDIES, MUMBAI

School of Gender Studies was set up in June 2014 with the introduction of the MA in Women’s Studies program. By then the Hyderabad campus was also offering the Integrated M. Phil-PhD in Women’s Studies and the PhD in Women’s Studies programs.

Since the 1980s when Women’s Studies was first introduced as an academic discipline, its purpose has been to revitalize higher education in particular by bringing social issues closer, to generate new knowledge about women and gender relations, to work towards analysis and solutions to gender inequalities through research and documentation, and to facilitate the process of examining and reflecting on attitudes of bias and stereotypes.

It is in line with these original objectives of Women’s Studies as well as of the core commitment of TISS to promotion of equitable, sustainable and participatory development and social justice that the School was established in the Hyderabad campus. Drawing upon a broad range of disciplinary approaches to the study of women and gender, the School through its Master’s and doctoral programs, research and outreach projects, aims to promote gender sensitivity, equality and equity.

The courses aim to provide the students with the conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches to the study of gender. The Experiential Learning and Internships components provide students with hands-on experience in understanding and analysis of issues and concerns of gender intersecting with state policies and programs and social institutions.

ADMISSION PROCESS

Master of Arts (Women's Studies) is being offered from TISS Hyderabad since 2014. TISS Hyderabad has been offering M. Phil and Ph. D in Women’s Studies since 2012 and has Women's Studies faculty of national and international repute in the Hyderabad campus.

The Master of Arts (Women's Studies) program seeks to bring synthesis between feminist understanding and knowledge and the institutional emphasis on preparing cadres of social and development workers who will realize the dreams of sustainable, equitable and participatory development, social welfare and social justice. This program attempts to fulfil the urgent need to make a powerful and constructive critique of existing knowledge, especially in terms of its role in directing interventions to correct women’s exclusion from the fruits of development. Therefore, the program contents bring together a core of women-/gender-centered courses along with foundation courses, research methods, and field attachment.
