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 of the world. Here is a list of new programmes that JGU is offering in 2020:
The B.A. (Hons.) in Political Science degree is a three-year under-graduate
programme that is dedicated to the study of political evolution of the world we live
in. This degree aims to train students in all forms and manifestations of politics
including 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.) (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 & allied fields. This programme will be the first ever multi-disciplinary undergraduate degree in legal studies to be launched in 2020-21
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.
In addition, here are unique and distinctive multidisciplinary courses
offered at O.P. Jindal Global University:
The BA in Built Environment Studies at the Jindal School of Art and Architecture is a unique, three-year design program that is primarily based in a Liberal Arts Context.

management, landscape design, sustainable development to develop your own insights into the entire cross of people who work on the Built Environment. You also avail of many exchange opportunities with similar programs in some of the top schools of design globally.
