Undergraduate Programme in Environmental Studies

The minor programme at Ashoka trains future scholars and professionals to be rigorous analysts and effective communicators who can understand and address the complexity of environmental issues and interventions.  

Courses Offered

In addition to the Foundation Courses in Environmental Studies that each student is required to take, the department offers a wide range of courses.  While some of these introduce students to a sub-field of the discipline, others provide more specialised training to advanced students.  All the courses draw upon the research expertise of the instructors.
