Director UILAH

I am happy to share about University Institute of Liberal Arts and Humanities (UILAH) of Chandigarh University, which blends modern education with cutting edge technology in its curriculum. Liberal Arts classes focus on developing soft skills, like formulating arguments, solving problems, communicating, or analysing ideas, problems, and solutions. Liberal Arts is broader, and it includes Humanities, as well as other subdisciplines, like Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Mathematics. This allows Liberal Arts students to develop the soft skills we’ve already mentioned (critical thinking, problem-solving), which can be applied at any job.
