Goa is not only about beaches and xacutti. The State contains really good educational institutions as well. Goa’s literacy rate is more than 80%. The Manohar Parrikar School of Law, Governance and Public Policies at Goa University will be offering a new programme – MA in Public Administration – which will be introduced in the academic year 2021-2022.
Rs.10 crores was given to build a block to house the school. Nevertheless, the new programmes couldn’t start in June 2020.
The new master’s programme in Public Administration is projected to have 30 students. It is expected to be open for students with a Bachelor’s degree in any type of social studies. Government officials who want to enhance their administrative skills can apply as well.
“The Goa University has sought approvals from the state government for the new faculty positions under the school. Once the nod for the posts is received, the recruitments can begin and the first programme can be offered from July, when the new academic year is planned to start,” a source revealed.
