Hello friends,

I got an admit for the CCSS course just 3 days back. I am in a state of dilemma whether to join the course or not as I am preparing for civil services. Please help me understand a) if this can be achieved alongside the TISS curriculum for this course(which includes field works, internships etc.). b) Also, what are the future prospects and placement opportunities after completing it?

Read about international conferences which has been done in the past for environment and sustainable development like Earth Summit, Stockholm conference, Copenhagen conference, Rio+20 etc.

Also read about Brundtland Commission which has given a valid definition for sustainable development, about the history of IPCC ( Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change) and what this organisation does, and at last, be prepare for the technical questions from your education background in the interview session.

Last time there was a question:

According to you what would be the situation after an extreme event like flood, drought, cyclone etc. and how government should take care of the people?

andalso read something about GHGs, Kyoto protocol, Montreal protocol also.

I hope this will help you. ATB

Hi, I've been shortlisted for the CCSS PIT/PI and I want to know what sort of questions are asked in the pre-interview test, because the TISS PIT format says that the pre-Interview test will test the basic knowledge of students in the field of climate change and sustainable development and will also test the students' analytical abilities.

And I also wanted to know the calls to seats ratio for the course. The intake is only 15, so how many people are going to be called for the PIT/PI?

Hey! I need to know which of the two, the course at guwahati or mumbai is better. The ccss or the ecology, environment and sustainable studies. I know they're two different courses, but they share similar papers and I'm equally interested in both. So, it'll be nice if someone could suggest which is better in terms of options after the course and the placements (research counts!). I have to give my preference, that's about it. I'll anyways apply to both.

M.A. in ecology, environment and sustainability development course in Guwahati campus are very different from CCSS in Mumbai. Climate change is basically about Global Warming and Sustainable Development. EESD has broad perspective about environment, mainly focuses on ecology.
