Development has always been subjected to critical enquiry. Rural Development is a sub-field of development studies. From this point of view, there are nine papers in this course of which seven are mandatory and two are functional. These papers bring students into discussion about issues of development, which are urgent, massive and complex.
The objectives of this course are to acquaint the students with theories, approaches, techniques and issues of rural development.
It is also to promote the scientific approach in identifying development issues and solving problems practically regarding social, economic, political and environmental sectors.
