Welcome to the School of Liberal Arts, a fast-growing, dynamic and active community of scholars and writers! Our quest is for excellence in teaching, research, and service. We seek to engage students with a diverse range of subjects in a global and Indian context.
Our teaching mission is to encourage and motivate students towards a thorough and informed critical study of the humanities and social sciences, and to make connections between reading and writing practices.
As part of the School of Liberal Arts, the department offers programs in English, Psychology & Economics.
We take full responsibility of our students. We believe in addressing not just the errors on the pages of assignments and test papers, but also the larger errors of history, circumstances and institutional practices that can erode an individual student’s ability to discover and fulfil his or her true human potential.
As part of a research-based university, all students are encouraged to engage with the department's areas of research. Our faculty have a wide-ranging and interdisciplinary research training, reinforced by diverse learning and teaching experience from Indian and international universities. Their current research interests are in fields like English Language Teaching, Linguistics, Renaissance Humanism, History, Politics, Modernism, Women’s Studies, Speech and Pronunciation, Human Behavior, Communication, Travel Studies and Creative Writing.
The programs at IMS Unison University are uniquely tailored to the Indian student of literature in the 21st Century. We find that, today, students have to necessarily build bridges between their Indian identity, rooted in their mother tongues and a global identity founded on the English language. Therefore, our curriculum, which is both regional and international in orientation, exposes students to a wide variety of academic traditions across time and space. It places a premium on reading broadly but also deeply. Our students study the intimate relations between language, literary form, history, and culture, as well as discover and explore points of affinity and difference across borders of culture and chronology.
It is crucial, in the current global context, that students are trained to write in clear, articulate English and the Department offers courses in Academic and Creative Writing and Communication to be taken by all students, who will, in the process, learn to communicate effectively both orally and in writing. Through rigorous high standards of teaching and experiential learning methodologies, our undergraduates acquire skills of self-reflexive critical thinking along with historical and literary analysis.
Thanks to this broad-based education pedagogy, students graduating from the Liberal Arts programs at IUU will have a variety of career options not typically available to their counterparts at more traditional Indian universities.
