It is envisaged that the University should have four major schools, namely, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate Schools, the Professional Schools and the Cross-disciplinary Centers of Excellence.


The College of Arts and Sciences will consist of students and faculty in the following areas and organized into various divisions, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate courses will be under the following clusters:

  • Humanities and Languages
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Biological & Environmental Sciences
  • Mathematics and Physical Sciences


All undergraduate and graduate education in Social Sciences, Humanities, and Natural Sciences would be administered through the College of Arts & Sciences. The College's undergraduate curriculum will allow students to design their own education, develop their own interests, build their own perspectives and views by positing them vis-à-vis those of their peer and the rest of the world, learn about themselves and those around them in society, sharpen their ability to think critically and creatively, explore diversity in learning as well while focusing on few disciplines to build deep knowledge. The College will also develop shared values and a diverse base of common knowledge which would help build an appreciation of arts and culture, natural and social sciences, qualitative and quantitative analytical abilities, languages, and written and spoken abilities along with specific skills irrespective of the area of specialization.

  • Humanities and Social Sciences
