The disciplines of the Arts and Social
Sciences are a significant contribution to our society as they
create future leaders and professionals who have the sound scholarship
and intellectual integrity to play an important part in the advancement
of Pakistan, in a diversity of ways. Our university is known for
have produced renowned educationists and academicians who have made a
mark not only within but also outside the country by participating in
a dialogue at the international level through their research. The alumni
of the university are successful in maintaining the reputation of the
university as they build their careers, both here and abroad.
In the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences,
students aim to discover new ways of conceptualizing art in relation
to ideological and social development. It is clear that without
the cultural and philosophical content to economic and social or
political transformation, there is a loss in human values, traditions,
languages and art forms.
All these quintessential components
are addressed in the teaching, programmes of the Faculty. Students
can select their subjects with flexibility and choice in the various
options available to them along with their co-curricular activities
that help in promoting dynamic individuals who will be an asset
to our nation.
