The Azim Premji School of Education of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS-APSOE), since its inception in 2011, has been consistently working towards its goal of ensuring quality education in contextually responsive ways. The School has sought to achieve its objectives through academic programs offered at the institute and also through initiatives and activities that enable direct engagement with the different levels of school and higher education and the diverse stakeholders in the field. The vision document of the School of Education, which it conceptualized as its first activity through consultations with eminent educationists and experts within the country, emphasises the core principle of striking a balance between aiming for academic excellence on the one hand and critically engaging on the other hand with the practice of teaching and training in schools as well as institutes of higher education.

The existing academic programs offered by TISS-APSOE are spread across different educational levels. The School offers MPhil and Ph.D. in Education, Master of Arts in Education and a basket course in the last semester for students of B.A. in Social Sciences. The teaching programs introduce students to educational thought and practice across the globe and in India. Internships and field experience components are an integral part of all taught courses. The programs seek to develop a deeper understanding of contemporary educational discourses, socio-cultural influences, and alignment with diverse perspectives on education. The mutual engagement of students and faculty finds expression through systematic research that attempts to align conceptual thought with practical realities.

The MA Education program is spread over four semesters, i.e. across two years. The breaks between the semesters are utilized for experiential learning through internships. Internships allow students to visit a site of educational practice and immersion in the settings to gain an understanding of what characterises an educational discourse in that particular setting. The presentations and reflections of these experiences by the students contribute to creating a larger awareness of educational discourses in the country. It also provides a basis for anchoring conceptual understanding in the taught courses. Students also get an additional opportunity to explore and study an area of interest in-depth through their research dissertations. The dissertations are examined by external reviewers, allowing for critical feedback and inputs.
