A University should be a place of light, of liberty, and of learning” as Benjamin Disraeli defined the notion of University in the 19th century. The concept as he held, however, is relevant to the 21st century. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of ISU reinforces this idea of University, and provides the students with the required opportunities for transforming them into learned, enlightened and liberal humans who are essential to build a “knowledge society”.
At present, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences governs the Department of English under which two programs-- BA Honors in English and MA in English Literature and Cultural Studies-- are running. Besides, the Faculty helps other Departments under the Faculty of Business Studies and Faculty of Engineering and Technology to enhance their students’ English skills required to cope with their own curricula and texts.
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences builds the linkage between pedagogical needs and real-world situations, thereby ensuring quality education. In addition, the Faculty along with other Faculties of ISU is working for smooth governance, extension, development, and research so that the university finds it easy to attain its accreditation from Bangladesh Accreditation Council. In short, the Faculty aims at fulfilling the vision and the mission of the university– serving the nation by offering quality education for producing skilled graduates for the nation in the 21st century.
