Welcome Message

From the Dean

Liberal arts education is the cornerstone of IUB curricula. It focuses on a complete education by training the students beyond the skills needed to perform in the job market. Liberal arts education seeks to create a socially responsible person, endowing the student with the knowledge necessary to go about in the world.  It allows one to know one’s culture, society and civilization as it enriches the soul and enhances humanity through the learning of the arts, history, music, literature, science, and philosophy.


At IUB liberal arts education is conducted through the School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (SLASS). I, on behalf of the faculty and students of SLASS, welcome you to enter this wonderful world and experience creation first hand as you tell a story, recite a poem, perform in a drama, appreciate a song, paint a picture, take a photo, edit a film, write a column or debate a social issue. I welcome you to a world where life has a meaning and living has fulfillment.
- Dr. Mahbub Alam
