Department of Arts and Humanities

The Department of Arts and Humanities was established in 2013 with an interdisciplinary approach, combining Journalism and Psychology to nurture a well-rounded educational experience for students. By integrating psychology to understand human behavior and journalism to foster awareness of global issues, we aim to cultivate responsible and insightful individuals ready to navigate the complexities of the world. Recognizing the demand for both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the professional realm, the psychology department offers a range of courses such as Foundation of Psychology, Foundation of Behavior, Child   Development, Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology, and Health Psychology. Similarly, the journalism program is designed to equip students with advanced communication skills, moral integrity, creativity, and analytical thinking essential for leadership roles in mass media.

Through hands-on experience in digital labs and studios, students learn to critically analyze issues and develop a comprehensive understanding of their field. In addition to traditional academic activities, the department organizes guest lectures, conferences, workshops, industrial visits, and club events such as case conferences and film screenings to provide students with experiential learning opportunities.

Vision

Empowering truth-seekers and understanding the human psyche to illuminate the complexities of society with integrity and insight.
