In this spirit she continuously sought opportunities to learn, both, inside and outside the classroom. She strove for knowledge not just for herself but also to enrich others.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Program Description

Having laid the foundations for building a strong liberal arts degree program, BNU's Liberal Arts Department is embarking on an exciting journey to further richen, broaden and deepen its offerings for bright, inquisitive and vibrant minds. The robust, comprehensive, holistic, varied, and multi-disciplinary nature of this restructured program will visibly and qualitatively distinguish the line-up of our courses from those being marketed by others.

The primary impulse inspiring this step in our academic endeavors is the need to create and foster an academic agenda that creatively and constructively responds to the cultural, economic, political, and institutional challenges of the country. Since our inquiry is anchored around questions like who are we, what is our history, how do we live in and with the world today, and how do we live with others to find peace and prosperity, this initiative aims to cultivate an uninhibited spirit of inquiry in young minds by opening up new vistas of current thinking and action.

Our vision is to equip our students with the requisite tools such that they can craft rationally informed judgments from independent analysis, critical thinking, and the blending of global knowledge with local cultures and experiences. Our ambition is not to tell students what to think. We strive to create a fertile academic milieu where students are challenged to form their own opinions. We teach them how to think. We promise a uniquely transformative experience to help you grow into intellectually insightful and cosmopolitan individuals, fully cognizant of local challenges and global opportunities. Our students will, therefore, find this degree a fertile ground for free academic discussion and debate through intensive engagement with current global knowledge and texts produced by leading thinkers. By undergoing this experience we expect our students to find their answers and voices for determining and shaping alternative futures.

Apart from taking core courses in the Department of Liberal Arts, students will be encouraged to avail rich and unparalleled academic resources on offer in other BNU schools. Elective courses in fine arts and design studies, architecture, psychology, education, journalism, and film/television studies will be an integral component of our pedagogy and methodology. This degree is also highly suitable for students wanting to discover their moorings before pursuing higher education in law, business studies, social sciences, and other vocations.
