Indian Studies at Thammasat

The Republic of India is a regional power and a rising global power. India is a vast country with varied geographical features, climatic conditions, and diverse cultural landscapes. It is also a vibrant, functioning democracy, and has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies. India’s economic strength, IT industry, financial system, and role in maintaining global peace and security, along with its rising middle class population has naturally attracted the attention of the outside world.

Thailand and India have a long-standing diplomatic relationship for over 65 years. These relations are deeply rooted in their historical and cultural interactions, as well as extensive people-to-people contacts. More importantly, India’s “Look East” policy has been complemented by Thailand’s “Look West” policy in bringing the two countries closer to each other.

Thailand and India also play an important role in regional cooperation, linking South and South East Asia together. Both countries are members of the East Asia Summit (EAS), the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) groupings, along with the Mekong Ganga Cooperation (MGC), and the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD).

India’s historical role in the region has been substantial, with Indian language and culture laying important foundations for Thai religious and political thoughts. Given India’s importance, and the need to train a new generation of Indian Studies scholars in Thailand, the Pridi Banomyong International College has established the Indian Studies International Program.

ASEAN Studies at Thammasat

ASEAN members' flags in Jakarta.

The two-year Master’s program in ASEAN Studies is developed in response to the growing global importance of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). As one of the most prominent regional institutions in the world, ASEAN has long been established amid the context of immense complexity and diversity in terms of political, economic, and socio-cultural dimensions among member countries.

In this regard, the program offers students a comprehensive and profound understanding of such diversity in both traditional and contemporary features, along with the essential training in language skills of a chosen nation. Beyond gaining knowledge about the region through its regional institution, the interdisciplinary focus of the ASEAN Studies particularly aims at equipping necessary skills so as to apply this knowledge in a wide variety of personal experiences and professional contexts. In order to better accommodate full-time working professionals, all courses are conducted on Friday’s evening and weekend. The students will also benefit from courses taught by renowned scholars and personnel in both government and private sectors. Moreover, the program’s cooperation with partner universities around the world helps enhancing students’ opportunities in working closely with overseas academic advisors, broadening practical experiences through undertaking collaborative research with leading universities, and expanding professional networks through field studies in both ASEAN and non-ASEAN member countries. Click here for more information
