During the last three decades, public policy studies the world over have moved away from being a technocratic science to a deliberative system examining the critical relationships between people, polity and economy. The new science of public policy draws considerable strengths from narrative structures, contestations and engagements of people with governance system. To put differently, public policy study is not merely an exercise into quantifying outcome through statistical designs and empirical data, but also a qualitative measure of paradigms and theory building. It is in this aspect that the present course benchmarks itself from other courses in public policy. Most significantly, the designed course seeks to train students and stakeholders both in the fields of policy designs and governance models. This in a way is a departure from the hitherto approach to public policy studies. Most of the institutions engaged in public policy studies follow a quantitative approach, whereas the present course lays significant emphasis on qualitative measures of policy analysis, paradigm development and conception data into a grand theory of public policy. Last semester offers elective advance specialisation in select important sectors of public policies in India such as welfare of marginalised groups, minority welfare and development, welfare of women and children, language promotion and development policy, education policy, tribal development and ethnic accommodation, labour and employment policy, food and nutrition policy, natural resource management and development policy, industrial development policy, environmental, climate change and disaster management policy, power and energy policy, science and technology policy, health policy and agricultural development policy.
