About the School of International Studies
Established in 1955, the School of International Studies is the oldest school of the University. During the forty-six years of its existence, the School has established itself as one of the premier institutions in the country for the study of international relations and area studies.
The School has made pioneering contributions in promoting the study of international relations as an academic discipline in India and in advancing knowledge and understanding of international affairs from an interdisciplinary perspective. The School is also the first institution in the country to promote “Area Studies” and to develop expertise in various counties and regions of the world. It has also acquired an international reputation as a center of advanced learning.
The need for an institution of this type was first felt in years immediately following Independence. The Indian Council of World Affairs, which was then the only institution in the country concerned with foreign affairs, realized that to promote the study of international affairs in India effectively, it was important to train young men and women in interpreting current global developments in economic, social and political spheres.
