Applications are being accepted for admission to the postgraduate Society and Culture program at the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar. The program will begin in July 2024.

Applicants with bachelor’s degrees from any field of study should use the admissions.iitgn.ac.in/pgadmission/ link. February 10, 2024 is the deadline for the MA in Society and Culture. The dates of the examinations and interviews are March 9 and 10, 2024.

Those who meet the requirements and are accepted into the MA program at IIT Gandhinagar may apply for the “On-Campus Employment Opportunities Program.” During the semester, the chosen students may work up to 10 hours per week, and during breaks in between semesters, they may work up to 40 hours per week. The majority of students will begin at the base rate, with pay increases contingent on engagement and performance. The hourly rate will be between Rs. 150 and Rs. 200.

Additionally, the institute offers travel scholarships up to Rs 60,000 and encourages MA (Society and Culture) students to present their research at international conferences abroad.


A bachelor’s degree in any field with a minimum of 55% of the possible points (or an equivalent CPI/GPA) is the minimum requirement to apply. It should be noted that fulfilling the minimal application requirements does not ensure acceptance into the program.

Applicants may also include students who would be finishing their bachelor’s degree in the near future and those who are awaiting their final semester or year results.

Candidates who identify as SC, ST, or OBC must meet the eligibility requirements set forth by the Supreme Court.

The overall qualifications (bachelor’s program grades, academic achievements, aptitude for studying society and culture, etc.) will be the basis for shortlisting the applications. The eligibility requirements listed above are minimum standards; higher cut-off points may be used by the committee during the shortlisting process.
