Dean’s Message

Sharda University operates with the objective to provide education which is accessible, equitable, qualitative and inclusive in nature. The focus of the school is to nurture and develop cognitive and non-cognitive skills, aligned with the goals of Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship. The School offers undergraduate, postgraduate and Ph.D. programmes.

We at School of Humanities and Social Sciences equip the student with a strong theoretical, analytical and empirical understanding of the subject matter. This provides the very strong foundation which we believe will prepare the graduates from the school to become pragmatic professionals, competent decision and policy makers, while also being sensitive human beings. They will be capable of providing an integrated framework to various business and developmental issues, and all other concerns needed to be addressed at the micro and macro levels. They will also evolve with the philosophy of the subject matter, making their very core ingrained with principles, ethics, and values which are absolutely crucial in a society which is going through social transformation.

The academic calendar includes various curricular and extra-curricular activities, which further prepares our students to cope with difficult tasks, time management, and inflexibility, grooming them for life ahead. Our philosophy is to encourage an open door approach, open to feedback and constructive criticism creating a ground for a sound learning experience. The environment here is disciplined and rigorous, at the same time giving plenty of scope for creativity, originality and student initiatives.

Wishing you a  happy and successful life.

    SOLC provides the best base in individual development as well as grooming for becoming an asset to the society.
    It has been a year attending series of grooming session by our respective mentors, I find myself in a new light of knowledge and wisdom. Now, when I pause for a while at this moment and look back upon the very first day I stepped in this department as a larva, I find myself as a pupa. And two years from now, as I peep through the lens of knowledge and wisdom, I see myself as a colourful butterfly

    Being a student of the School of Languages and Cultures, I got a chance to live a new way of life. This department gave me several opportunities to enhance my communication skills and to progress academically. Here I gained a lot of confidence, to which I was oblivious at the beginning. Extracurricular activities which are frequently organized tremendously raised my level of confidence. The faculty members are always supportive and encouraging and I am very grateful to them
