    Have a question related to TISS Mumbai ?

    can i get Tiss Mumbai collage admission details?

    Dear aspirant !

    Hope you are doing well ! Admission to  courses is based on a valid score in TISS-NET followed by TISS-PAT and an online interview round . Final admission is given to students who become a part of the merit list released by the institute . You can also get direct admission TISS management quota seats or NRI quota seats can help you getting direct admission in MBA or LLM management programs . Hence, if you are assuming that if you can't score well in TISSNET, you may not be able to get admission, but it's not true..

    Hope it helps you !

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

    Hi,

    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.

    Good luck.
