All the course participants are required to
work on a supervised research essay/ project and/or supervised field work,
thus integrating the book and field view. Teaching methods are democratic,
participatory, and collaborative and seek to integrate intellectual,
emotional and political engagement.
Visiting faculty and Scholars in residence include renowned scholars and
activists. Certificate courses are taught in English and Marathi and
resource kits/reading material is provided to the course participants. The
Diploma and Masters Programmes have a built in focus on ‘language’ both in
terms of remedial English and assisting students to work in Indian
languages. As the Centre is a part of the network of women’s organizations,
activist groups and NGOs, the effort is to offer course participants,
opportunities for internships, on-the-field training and assignment-based
work with organizations and the community.
Detailed course outlines and reading materials are circulated in advance and
in addition to listed courses faculty may float open courses.
