Greetings from the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Tirupati!

The The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) at IIT Tirupati currently runs a two-year post-graduate program in Public Policy (Masters of Public Policy, MPP). The Department also runs a Ph.D. program and contributes core and elective courses for the B. Tech. curriculum. In terms of its structure, the department is unique as it finds itself at the confluence of several disciplines. It is currently home to faculty members from Philosophy, English, Economics, Public Policy, and Management studies. The wide range of courses that it offers, reflects this diversity.

Through an innovative line-up of courses and problem-based, participatory pedagogy, we hope to be able to train new cohorts of skilled professionals who can contribute to our society in meaningful ways. Parallel to these efforts, the department also aims to project itself as a center of research excellence. Our faculty members have undertaken consultancies, have garnered externally funded projects, and their research outputs have appeared in leading national and international journals as well. It is hoped that in the coming years, we can build on these efforts and scale even newer heights.

---- Dr. Prabha Shankar Dwivedi
