The University conducts M.A. in Cultural Studies for its students. As a discipline of recent vantage, Cultural Studies goes beyond the usual notion associated with ‘culture’. Cultural Studies is definitely different from the study of culture. It includes analysis of a gamut of expressive behaviors and the interface with contemporary social and cultural reality. Amongst its prime interest, are literature, film, art, popular culture, pedagogy and culture, commodity and the world of media. The notion of the ‘text’ emerges from the confines of the literary text to embrace a wide world of the social and political way of life, and how an analytical mindset helps to come to terms with the dynamics of change. Cultural Studies promotes the generation of methods and paradigms that examines the changing relationship between culture, society, history, politics and technology in the contemporary world. At the same time, Cultural Studies also focuses attention on human creativity and how it is being shaped by social ideology and cultural consumption that straddles both the local and the global.
