The School of Humanities & Social Science is founded on the conviction that the humanities give purpose, direction and value to education and life, and that they are no less important to society than scientific and technological disciplines. The school aims at providing a centre of common awareness and a sense of human responsibility, making the university a little more than a complex of specialist departments. In addition, the school is committed to the achievement of academic and linguistic excellence, creativity and all round development of students. The programmes offered reflect these objectives and concerns.
Message from HOD
Dr. Mejar Singh
HOD - Department of Humanities
School of Humanities and Social Sciences hosts the disciplines of Economics, English literature, Punjabi Literature, Hindi Literature, History, Political Science, Sociology, Defence and Strategic Studies, Physical Education and Psychology. The school has grown substantially since its inception in the year 2016. The School of Humanities has gradually come to occupy a unique position in RIMT University, a paramount institution of higher learning in the area. The department provides the students of Humanities with skills to understand key concepts, the power to express via multiple languages, social research and analytical ability finally to deliberate philosophically. The faculty members of the school have diverse work experiences from the finest institutions in India. Across disciplines, the School of Humanities offers a wide variety of core and elective courses for Under Graduate, Post Graduate and Ph.D courses. There has also been an increasing trend in the number of Ph.D students over the last few years. The department has dedicated labs for teaching and research, and we are planning to introduce more labs in coming years. The department is also planning to introduce new programs in collaboration with other institutions in India as well as abroad. The department also organizes regular seminars in addition to workshops in various subjects for Ph.D and postgraduate students.
I am confident that in the coming decade the School of Humanities will emerge as one of the most sought after schools of RIMT University Mandi Gobindgarh (Punjab) in terms of academic excellence.
