At the core of JGU’s vision and mission is our aspiration to be a role model for excellence in higher education in India and be among the leading universities in the world.
Here is a list of new programs that JGU is offering in 2020:
B.A.(Hons.) (Political Science)
B.A.(Hons.) (Social Science and Policy)
B.A.(Hons.) (Legal Studies)
The B.A. (Hons.) in Political Science degree is a three-year under-graduate programme that is dedicated to the study of the political evolution of the world we live in. This degree aims to train students in all forms and manifestations of politics from local, state, national and international levels.
The B.A. (Hons.) in Social Sciences and Policy is a unique and first of its kind interdisciplinary programme in India, which provides the students with a solid grounding in social science theories and their applications.
The B.A. (Hons.) in Legal Studies aims to nurture legal imagination among young students and build a strong foundation to study law and social sciences in the future or be absorbed into legal and allied fields. This programme will be the first ever multi-disciplinary undergraduate degree in legal studies to be launched in the 2020-21 academic year.
The M.A. Economics programme fills important gaps in post-graduate Economics courses as they are presently taught in most places in India and abroad. This unique programme will impart knowledge and skills that will be increasingly in demand in the foreseeable future, focusing on excellence in academia, policy teams in corporations, consultancy companies, non-profit organisations, and governments at national, state and local levels.
JGU has a student community with over 5000 students from different parts of the country as well as a sizable international population. Over 50 % of our students are given some formof scholarship depending on the merit, says Professor Arjya B Majumdar, Director, Admission & Outreach, O. P. Jindal Global University.
“Over the next decade, as JGU expands rapidly, our vision, mission and core values will become ever more crucial, in order that our future is created through a mindful recognition of our past, anticipating the neds of future generations; our institutional responsibility to the University’s various stakeholders and neighbouring communities; our commitment to public causes that will advance India’s social and economic development and further nation building,” he said.
Since 2012, 2857 students have earned their degrees from various programmes across JGU. Over eight years, our graduates have gone on to form an alumni community that comprises some of the most talented, driven and committed individuals within their domains of work and study. Our alumni are now spread across every corner of the world and engaged in careers and advanced study in a wide range of disciplines and fields.
As JGU enters its second decade since founding and our institution building activities take on greater rigour, aspiration and depth, our 2857 alumni will play a more crucial role than ever before in representing JGU’s founding values and vision.
