M.A. Admissions

Master of Arts (Public Policy and Governance)

Location: Hyderabad

School: School of Public Policy and Governance

Intake: 34



  • Initiated in 2013, the School of Public Policy and Governance (SPPG) is conceived to respond to the mismatch between existing policy institutions and emerging social and policy challenges
  • Current governance frameworks now include a wider panoply of state, parastatal and non-state actors
  • These institutions demand a multi-disciplinary team of professionals, drawn from outside the government, to engage with policy ideas through an analysis of institutions and regulatory practices, social structure, big-data and analytics, and law
  • Responding to this demand, TISS- Hyderabad offers a two year full time graduate programme - M.A. in Public Policy and Governance (MA-PPG)
  • It provides students with interdisciplinary expertise, methodological skills and field experience required for working as a public policy professional or to pursue higher academic degrees
  • It encourages students to engender operational frameworks for accountable governance and create human opportunities towards a just society
