    I'm a student of public health at tiss. The curriculum is broad, with heavy focus on public health. there are 3 compulsory internships which give practical hands-on exposure and training to public health students. their evaluation system consists of assignments and theory exams. Teaching method is a good mix of conventional blackboard and audio visual systems. Professors are experienced and can translate their knowledge effectively, although every college has professors we might not be fond of.

    How is B A Social Sciences course & faculty at TISS,Tuljapur ?


    When it comes to choosing the ideal college for BA in social sciences especially in India, TISS should be your most logical choice in all aspects.

    BA in social sciences from TISS will give you an edge as TISS has courses for Masters and PhD as well. I personally know a lot of my classmates who came to TISS for their Bachelors and they never left. So there shouldn't be any doubts about the college's brand image and reputation.

    As far as social sciences as a field of study goes, I personally did my graduation in commerce which I now regret. Social sciences is a very broad field culminating psychology, sociology, rural development, philosophy, policy, economics, finance, administration and several other fields. This helps in gaining a wider perspective and knowledge on what's happening in the world.

    According to me, social sciences is the field of the future along with technology and engineering. So if you want to jump into a field which excites you and where there are no saturation levels, social science is the way to go.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.
