The Centre has two separate research programmes: the Master of Philosophy Programme leading to the award of M.Phil. degree and the Doctor of Philosophy leading to the award of the Ph.D. degree. The Centre at present admits 30 students to the M.Phil programme each year. The M.Phil. programme is spread over four semesters and students are expected to complete the course in the first two semesters. The students must obtain a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 5.00. A student who obtains a CGPA of less than 5.00 in the Course work is not eligible to submit his/her dissertation and is disqualified from earning the M.Phil. degree.
A student admitted to the M.Phil. programme must offer five courses three of which are compulsory. The compulsory courses are:
(1) Philosophy and Methods in Social Sciences
(2) Approaches, Concepts and Methods of Political Analysis
Two of the compulsory courses are designed to equip and train students in the methods and techniques of political research, along with an introduction to methodological debates and issues in social sciences, as well as to the basic approaches and concepts of political analysis. The third and fourth courses, which every student must take, are optional courses, which students may select in consonance with their research interests. The choice of the optional would be decided by the research needs and specialization stream chosen by the student.
