Department of Liberal Arts

Brief Profile of the Department

It was recognized widely that a liberal arts education is basically intended to expand and expose the capacity of the mind to think critically and analyze information effectively. It develops and strengthens the brain to think within and across all disciplines so that it may serve the individual over a lifetime.

Art History Professor T. Kitao of Swarthmore delivered an address with a poignant summary of the value of a liberal education: “The knowledge you learn about the subject of the course is its nominal benefit. It is like the stated moral at the end of a fable. The real substance of learning is something more subtle and complex and profound, which cannot be easily summarized – like the story itself. It has to be experienced, and it is as an experience that it becomes an integral part of the person. Learning how to learn by learning how to think makes a well-educated person.” And further another great personality Steve Jobs once said, “Technology alone is not enough. Its technology married with the liberal arts, married with the humanities that yields us the results that make our hearts sing.” It’s important to remember that, while there is a demand for STEM students and specialized degrees, it is possible to pursue a liberal arts education with intent and create multiple paths to career success in the process.

Keeping in mind of the importance and values in the 21st century, Tripura University introduced a Post Graduate Course in Liberal Arts, in the year 2019 with intake capacity of 20 students. 1st batch was enrolled with 13 students during academic session 2019-20. Currently, the Department offers Post Graduate course including papers like Cultural Studies, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Archaeology and Anthropology in the 1st & 2nd Semester.
