Description

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) was established in 1936, as the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work. Its establishment was the result of the decision of the Trustees of the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust to accept Dr. Clifford Manshardt's vision of a post-graduate school of social work of national stature that would engage in a continuous study of Indian social issues and problems, and impart education in social work to meet the emerging need for trained human resources.

In 1944, the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work was renamed as the Tata Institute of Social Sciences. The year 1964 was an important landmark in the history of the Institute, when it was recognised as a Deemed University by the Government of India (GoI).Since then, the TISS has been expanding continuously in terms of educational programmes and infrastructure. While responding to the changing needs of the social and educational system in the country, the Institute has gone far beyond the initial concern of social work education.

  • M.A. in Human Resources Management & Labour Relations

    The M.A. in Human Resources Management and Labour Relations (HRM & LR), programme (formerly known as M.A. in Personnel Management and Industrial Relations), offered by the School of Management and Labour Studies, is designed to develop students into professionally competent and socially sensitive management graduates, fully equipped to take on the challenges of the corporate world. This programme presents an outstanding prospect to explore the critical areas of contemporary human resources management, in concert with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the key functions of management and business. The broad objectives of this M.A. programme are to sensitise students to the social, political, economic, and ecological environments of the society; to enable students to become effective business leaders and decision-makers to contribute to organisational effectiveness; to facilitate the use of systems thinking among the students to evolve possibilities while addressing various personal and organisational challenges; to develop a global perspective among students to respond to global challenges; and to impart values of intellectual honesty, justice and fairness. The School has undertaken a major restructuring of its curriculum to realise these objectives while responding to the changes in the external environment and in consonance with the mission of the Institute.

    The programme places importance on both theoretical and hands-on learning. While classroom learning through participation in the forms of discussions and case studies, presentations, simulation games, assignments, etc., emphasises conceptual clarity, practical inputs are provided through the rigorous field work system, which complements the classroom inputs by throwing light on the practical dimension of the profession. The insights that emerge out of such an experience make students conceptually strong and successful in practice of the profession. All these, coupled with the focused attention that students get owing to the small size of the batch, makes personal learning highly effective. Field work is a continuous process, which seeks to facilitate student's exposure to varied industry sectors. Besides field work, students also undertake internships with organisations for a period ranging from 6-8 weeks, which is seen as an opportunity for the student to learn significantly from, and contribute meaningfully to organisations.

    In brief, the M.A. in HRM & LR programme, which benefits from over 4 decades of teaching and research in the same area, is a challenging teaching-learning experience that blends cutting edge theory with innovative practice to develop business leaders for the global industry. The TISS HRM & LR post-graduates are amongst the most sought after in global industry today. They occupy positions of leadership across a wide spectrum of industries and sectors including, IT/ITeS, banking and finance, telecom, manufacturing, public sector, pharmaceutical, retail and management consultancy.

  • Ph.D Programme

    Programme Structure:

    - A scholar selected for admission to the Ph.D. programme will work under the supervision of a guide, or a guide and a co-guide. A Doctoral Advisory Committee (DAC) will be constituted to monitor progress made.

    - The scholar shall choose the area of his/her research in consultation with the guide (and co-guide and Doctoral Advisory Committee). The research proposal prepared by the candidate shall be presented at a seminar.

    - The scholar shall submit through his/her guide the report of progress in his/her research work. These reports shall be submitted in the months of January and July. If in two consecutive reports the progress of a scholar's research work is found to be unsatisfactory, he/she shall be automatically deregistered from the programme.

    - The scholar shall submit three copies of the thesis embodying the results of his/her research work, not later than three years from the date of registration for the Ph.D. programme. However, on the recommendation of the guide and Research Council, an extension of one year may be granted. Scholars who do not submit their thesis within four years of their registration will be automatically deregistered. However, if they wish to continue for the programme, they will have to register afresh for the programme. Ordinarily, no scholar shall submit his/her thesis before two years from the date of his/her registration. This condition may, however, be waived on the recommendation of the Research Council of the Institute.

    - The research scholar should submit, through his/her guide, three copies of the final title and synopsis (in about 1,500 words) of the thesis and make a seminar presentation, at least three months before submission of the thesis.

    - The scholars are encouraged to publish various aspects of their work during the course of study. Each scholar must publish at least two papers in peer reviewed journals.

    - The thesis shall be adjudicated by two examiners from outside the Institute. These examiners shall be appointed by the Director from a panel of examiners proposed by the guide (and co-guide, if any).

    - If both the examiners appointed to adjudicate the thesis unanimously recommend that the thesis be accepted for the award of the degree, the scholar may be asked to defend his/her thesis at an open viva voce examination. It will be conducted by one of the examiners who have adjudicated the thesis. If both these examiners are unable to conduct the viva voce examination, the Director may appoint another examiner from the panel. On the successful defence of his/her thesis, the scholar will be recommended for the award of the Ph.D. Degree.

    - If both the examiners reject the thesis, the scholar will be deemed to have failed and will be deregistered from the programme.

    - If any examiner recommends revision of the thesis, the Research Council shall review the report of that examiner and advise the scholar to revise the thesis and resubmit it not earlier than six months. In case the thesis is revised and resubmitted, it shall be referred to the examiner who had recommended the revision, and only after he/she approves the thesis, the viva voce examination will be conducted.

    - If one examiner recommends the award of the degree and the other rejects it, the thesis shall be referred to a third examiner, whose verdict will be final. The third examiner shall be appointed by the Director from the panel.
