Programme of Study : We offer.....Read More..about Programmes

The school offers a Master’s degree (M.Sc.) in Computational and Integrative Sciences, Post- Graduate Diploma (PGD) in Big Data Analytics and Ph.D. degree. All the teaching and research programmes implemented in the School have been conceptualized as interdisciplinary programs.


 M.Sc. in Computational and Integrative Sciences

The School runs a M. Sc. program in Computational and Integrative Sciences with specializations in Computational Biology and Complex Systems. The admission to the M. Sc. program is through two different modes as per details given in the admission procedure, one of which is supported by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India.

The program aims to provide a rigorous training and equipping the students with theoretical understanding and practical mastery in state-of-art applications of computational approaches and experimental techniques to model and analyze the biological and complex systems.

 P.G. Diploma in Big Data Analytics

The School runs a PG Diploma program in Big Data Analytics. This skill-development program is aimed at training postgraduates in the upcoming field of Big Data analytics for life sciences, health and other areas. The students from this program are expected to learn key technologies of data sciences, such as machine learning, data integration and modelling technologies, which can be applied in academic and industry environment in future.

 Ph.D in Computational and Integrative Sciences

The School encourages intake from multiple disciplines into its Ph. D. programme, which are grouped with independently specified intake requirements as (a) Physical Sciences (Track 1) (b) Biological Sciences (Track 2) and (c) Mathematical and Computer Sciences (Track 3), to provide an optimal peer-group of analytical, domain and computational skills within each program. The School offers advanced courses for the Ph.D. students to complete the credit requirements as per the UGC/University guidelines.

A warm welcome to the modified and updated website of the Centre for East Asian Studies. The East Asian region has been at the forefront of several path-breaking changes since 1970s beginning with the redefining the development architecture with its State-led development model besides emerging as a major region in the global politics and a key hub of the sophisticated technologies. The Centre is one of the thirteen Centres of the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi that provides a holistic understanding of the region.

Initially, established as a Centre for Chinese and Japanese Studies, it subsequently grew to include Korean Studies as well. At present there are eight faculty members in the Centre. Several distinguished faculty who have now retired include the late Prof. Gargi Dutt, Prof. P.A.N. Murthy, Prof. G.P. Deshpande, Dr. Nranarayan Das, Prof. R.R. Krishnan and Prof. K.V. Kesavan. Besides, Dr. Madhu Bhalla served at the Centre in Chinese Studies Programme during 1994-2006. In addition, Ms. Kamlesh Jain and Dr. M. M. Kunju served the Centre as the Documentation Officers in Chinese and Japanese Studies respectively.

The academic curriculum covers both modern and contemporary facets of East Asia as each scholar specializes in an area of his/her interest in the region. The integrated course involves two semesters of classes at the M. Phil programme and a dissertation for the M. Phil and a thesis for Ph. D programme respectively. The central objective is to impart an interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding of history, foreign policy, government and politics, society and culture and political economy of the respective areas. Students can explore new and emerging themes such as East Asian regionalism, the evolving East Asian Community, the rise of China, resurgence of Japan and the prospects for reunification of the Korean peninsula. Additionally, the Centre lays great emphasis on the building of language skills. The background of scholars includes mostly from the social science disciplines; History, Political Science, Economics, Sociology, International Relations and language.

Several students of the centre have been recipients of prestigious research fellowships awarded by Japan Foundation, Mombusho (Ministry of Education, Government of Japan), Saburo Okita Memorial Fellowship, Nippon Foundation, Korea Foundation, Nehru Memorial Fellowship, and Fellowship from the Chinese and Taiwanese Governments. Besides, students from Japan receive fellowship from the Indian Council of Cultural Relations.
