Message from the Dean, School of Arts

dean_soaThis website describes the course structure and other details regarding two Master Level interdisciplinary courses (Human and Natural Resources Studies and Development Studies) and to Bachelor Level courses (Bachelor in Community Development and Bachelor in Economics) being offered by Kathmandu University, under the School of Arts.

Based on the experience so far, both the programmes have received encouraging responses from students. They have also provided excellent feedback and to the extent feasible, the University has been modifying the courses and will continue to do so in the future. One new focus in all of the programmes is to provide greater practical exposure on concrete human and natural resources management and development related issues.

In the days ahead greater emphasis will be given to involvement in the community level where faculty and students will work together with local people to understand, analyze and recommend specific solutions to outstanding problems in development. With increased faculty members in these programs, Kathmandu University, School of Arts is making greater commitment for increased academic rigor and quality in all aspects of learning.

We hope the information contained will be useful to all interested in these programmes. We look forward to your suggestions.
