The stream of Humanities strives to offer students a platform to explore Social Sciences as an interdisciplinary platform of philosophies. We aim to equip students with an in-depth understanding of the field of their interest. By encouraging our students to develop an inquisitive attitude and address critical questions of discourses, we train our students to strengthen their skill sets and flourish holistically. Through a spectrum of programs, we urge our students to transform into professionals who are well-versed in the dynamics of the field and develop a nuanced understanding to venture into the technicalities, creatively. Students will be trained to meet and create beyond the field’s expectations through a thoroughly administered facilitation of the craft.
