The MAED is a rigorous, full-time, interdisciplinary programme with strong emphasis on reading, writing and field-based research. It is unique in India given its orientation and scope, which is guided by the idea that ecological challenges such as atmospheric pollution, resource depletion, and the attendant threats to ecosystems and biodiversity, result from a complex interaction of socio-political and biophysical factors. Students are exposed to core ideas and approaches from the ecological and social sciences to understand issues at the intersection of human society and the biophysical environment. The programme aims to create changemakers who can contribute to sustainability and social justice at the national and global scale through research, advocacy and practice.


MAED comprises 64 credits spread over two years (4 semesters).

Each semester is of 16 credits carried out over 16 weeks of academic work including assessments and field projects.

The 64 credits required for completion of the Programme are distributed between Core courses (32 credits), specialised Elective courses (22 credits), summer internship (2 credits) and MA dissertation (8 credits).

For their dissertation, students are required to take up an independent research project under a designated faculty supervisor. It commences at the end of Semester III and is  completed in Semester IV. It is assessed on the basis of a written dissertation thesis and a viva voce.

Students can choose to specialize in three broad areas through selection of elective courses and dissertation topic: (a) Environmental Policy and Management; (b) Ecosystems, Conservation and Society; (c) Environmental Politics and Justice
