Master of Arts Sociology
The Department of Environment and Climate Change at Central College Campus was established in 2021. The PG Program in Environmental Science is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of varied environmental issues using an interdisciplinary approach that synthesises an understanding of the science as well as the socio-economic implications of these issues.
The curriculum include laboratory experience, fieldwork experience; social science based project experience as well as sensitisation of students/citizens about environmental dynamics. The mission is to equip students with skills in research methods, inculcate in them a contextual understanding of significant global and regional/urban/Bengaluru environmental issues, and enable students to integrate the academics and techniques for reconstructing recent environmental changes.
