Interdisciplinary in orientation, the Department currently offers courses in five subjects: Economics, English Literature and Linguistics, Philosophy, Psychology and Sociology.
It is in this respect that we feel particularly well-equipped to contribute to a science, arts and ethics dialogue across cultural boundaries.
Original contributions to research and to ongoing debates in ethics, cultural anthropology, critical theory, cognition, ideology, development policy, organizational behaviour and economic activity, environmental and gender studies, the history of science and technology, the philosophy of culture, and indeed to the nature of theory itself are crucial within a Department like ours.
Teaching methods in HUSS emphasize the discursive mode and interpersonal contact between faculty and students both at the UG and PG levels. The ‘Communication Skills’ course is only one such example of our efforts to foster social and intellectual self-confidence
The program is based on a special general education core that provides an academic base.
