HOD Welcome Message

Dear Student, The Humanities and Social Sciences enables a person to be a good human being, a good leader, a good communicator, a good officer (IAS, IPS etc.) and an aware social individual. In the present time, everyone is self-centered, therefore, it is the need of the society to have such individuals who deal empathically and communicate with each other to help one another and form good relationships not just within but even outside their state/country. Literature is one of the disciplines of Humanities and Social Sciences, it enables a person to know about the various cultures and peoples living around the world and get influenced or benefitted by the socioeconomic, cultural and political ideas prevailing all over the societies. Thereby it helps in understanding others via their languages, histories and cultures. The humanities also nurture a person to think creatively by questioning the existence and creation of the world/nature.

The humanities enrich a person about human rights, equality and social justice through the study of its other disciplines like Law and Political Science. The humanities also encompass history, philosophy, sociology, media studies, and other related disciplines. Therefore, the skills and knowledge gained through the humanities enable a person to understand various cultures around the globe, to think critically and creatively, to communicate effectively, to understand the history of the world, and thus analysing human behaviour around the globe.

The IEC School of Humanities and Social Sciences has good infrastructure and professional teachers to guide the students in the positive direction of becoming a leader, good speaker/communicator, and good officers by improving and inculcating the desired skills for this. So on behalf of IEC family I, Munish Kumar Thakur, invite and welcome you to our university.
