Objectives of Courses provided in the Department

The Department of General Studies provides courses of instruction of the general education component in the curriculum of all accredited academic programmes run by the Institution.  Generally, the courses provided by the Department are intended to:

Promote a broad-based education designed to sharpen students’ communication skills, their realization of the need for the cross-fertilization of ideas and the inter-relatedness of the various disciplines as well as bridging the gap between what would have been otherwise two separate cultures, i.e. the literary and the scientific; and

To inculcate the idea of national loyalty and understanding based on an awareness of the nation’s roots and cultural antecedents, thus enabling students to come to grips with our societal morals, national aspirations, values and problems.

Towards this end, the Department is equipped to provide and coordinate courses that are ancillary but necessary to the focal core of each department.  Such courses are available in the broad units of: English and Communication; Social Sciences; and Law.
