In the contemporary scenario, India's interest in the world as well as the world's interest in India is visibly at its highest. Therefore, it becomes imperative that Indian scholarship on global issues should respond to the opportunities that this presents. To this end, the Symbiosis School of International Studies (SSIS) endeavours to provide a platform for teaching and research in international relations, with an emphasis on India and its role in global affairs. Set up in consonance with the broader vision of Symbiosis Society, which is "to integrate with the world", SSIS strives to constantly engage in scholarly pursuits in an environment of intellectual fellowship, aimed at the academic enrichment of the entire community.
The M.A. (International Studies) programme offered by SSIS seeks to equip students with knowledge and skills pertinent to address the 21st century global challenges. The holistic nature of courses offered under the M.A. (International Studies) programme provides students with the lens to critically examine, analyze and understand contemporary issues based on a multi-disciplinary approach. Apart from the teaching vertical, SSIS also hosts the flagship annual International Relations Conference (IRC) and an online research portal-Indian Review of Global Affairs (IRGA).
