The programme is offered by the School of Historical Studies (SHS). The School is a dynamic community of faculty members and graduate students, engaged in a systematic and rigorous enquiry into some of the fundamental questions that concern historical experiences within and beyond Asia. The School draws its inspiration from the glorious legacy of ancient Nālandā which served as a conduit for India’s vibrant intellectual linkages with the world for nearly a millennium. As is evident from the research profiles of its faculty, SHS is uniquely poised to train students in the cultural, religious and intellectual history of India and other regions of Asia from a comparative and cross-cultural perspective.

One of the salient features of the School is its pedagogical focus on critical thinking, leading to the creation of experiential knowledge through rigorous enquiry and debate, regular conduct of examinations, and writing of assignments.
