Message from the HoD

Welcome to the Department of Humanities at COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Islamabad.

The department, a vibrant and dynamic unit, has lately made significant strides both in terms of research and quality of teaching in the realm of humanities. With 27 PhDs and 25 MS, the department is well poised to undertake teaching of wide array of disciplines and proceed with the launching of different programmes. BS (Psychology) and MS (Linguistics & Literature and International Relations) are the 03 programmes that are growing exponentially. Our internationally qualified faculty, engaged in the teaching of these disciplines, has made the department a much sought after choice for the students. Having met with great success in our recent endeavours, the department is readying itself to offer MS in (Clinical Psychology), MS in (Education) and PhD in (Linguistics and Literature). As depth and richness in diversity are inherent in our set up, the department will also open up vistas of knowledge in the new emerging fields of social sciences.

At the Department of Humanities, you will find faculty working on EOP (English for Occupational Purposes), EAP (English for Academic Purposes), and Communication Skills. Faculty is developing teaching strategies based on the most recent approaches towards learning innovations. Our faculty is engaged in various projects to collaborate with certain disciplines in order to enhance the learning and understanding of the students belonging from diverse domains.

Our faculty is applying analytical and causal approaches to develop ethical values, morals and proficiency among the students across various academic disciplines at CIIT. We are working on educational, research, and service activities in a wide variety of areas that will help build a better society.

I hope you not only find what you’re looking for, but that this website may lead you to visit our campus in Islamabad.
