The School of Ecology and Environment Studies (SEES) is defining the Nalanda Model of sustainable and inclusive development. It has its roots in local traditions, links past and present systems of knowledge and bridges the gap in the understanding of environmental issues between the West and the East. It is the first truly interdisciplinary School in India, and possibly in the East Asian region, combining knowledge from the basic sciences, social sciences and humanities to train environmental leaders of tomorrow. Global intellectual engagement, through collaborative projects, tie-ups and exchanges with local and international institutions, is creating leaders representing an inter-connected Asia, championing ideas based on mutual understanding. The School is trying to chart out the new social contract for science in the “century of the environment” by promoting dialogue among different bodies of knowledge and close interaction of different actors and organizations to tackle the challenges and opportunities arising in the contemporary world for promoting a sustainable future. The School offers a two-year Master’s program with both M.A. and M.Sc. degrees in Environmental Studies. The School welcomes students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, who are habitually curious, share a passion for environmental leadership and an aptitude for learning. All Master’s students are required to obtain at least 64 credits spread over 4 semesters, with a summer internship during the vacation between the first and second year and a dissertation in the last semester.
