About School of Liberal Arts

Promoting thorough understanding of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences in global perspective

The Liberal Arts Program at the Sanjay Ghodawat University offers Under Graduate, Post Graduate and Doctoral programs in English, Economics, Psychology, Sociology and Fine Arts. It offers students the choice of more than one subject to study while choosing one major subject of their choice. The student thus gets the unique opportunity to major in a subject of his liking and also gets the knowledge and expertise of other subject that can complement his overall learning and give a holistic approach to the degree

The Department of Liberal Arts offers some courses as Core Subjects (Compulsory) in areas that will help him excel as professional. The other General courses are offered as Elective that the student can select out of the given pool of subjects so that his horizons of learning are widened and he gains an all round perspective. The student also has to select one Major subject which he/she will specialize in and one minor subject. Thus Sanjay Ghodawat University tends to equip the student with not just one specialization but have a multi specialization angle to his academic pursuits that helps him/her gain a wider perspective.

The innovative teaching - learning methodology will include activities like G.D. Seminars, Case Studies, Field Visits, Quiz, Dramatics etc to involve the students wholly in the learning process and help them develop a solution oriented thought process to the challenges of the 21st Century. The correlation of different areas including politics, culture, historic and economics will better prepare the graduate to approach the world with better understanding. SGU believes in preparing students to apply their learning in the field and not just have rote learning and thus the School of Liberal Arts has designed and developed courses that can become a life changing opportunity for the students.
