The School of Ecology and Environment Studies (SEES) is one of the first schools at the Nalanda University, which commenced its academic programme in August 2014. The School traverses a broad range of academic pursuits across natural sciences and social sciences, to promote education and research on the interactions between the natural environment and human activities.
Rooted in the tradition of the ancient Nalanda University, the School aspires to generate critical understanding that will benefit the globe. The School also seeks to bridge the current gap in the study of environmental issues between the Western and the Eastern perspectives. It addresses pressing local, regional and global environmental problems of our times through education, research, collaborations, and policy recommendations.
Out of a broad range of possible interest areas in the School, the present focus areas are: Human Ecology, Hydrology, Disaster Management, Food and Agriculture, Climate Change, and Energy Studies.
Life on campus encourages a paradigm of lived philosophy melding with taught philosophy. Nalanda University is a “live-laboratory” for research and innovation in Ecology and Environment Studies and will co-create knowledge to benefit the local communities.
