The Department of Liberal Arts was established at IIT Bhilai on the basis that true interdisciplinarity may best be achieved in an institution which has a firm grasp of applied and social sciences. The freedom engendered by this combination helps create the ideal environment for advanced research and cutting-edge pedagogy, where new areas can be explored and further disseminated.

Presently, the Department of Liberal Arts has faculty members specializing in the fields of Psychology, Economics, Literature and Cultural Studies. The courses offered by the department at the B.Tech. and PhD levels encourage exploration and learning across these disciplines. The diverse range of topics help students to question the history of ideas, and to think creatively and critically about the world through the major developments in the humanities and the arts. A visiting language-instructor from Taiwan also offers courses in Mandarin, which, together with the bouquet of communication courses, equips students with the key skills required to express themselves in the academic and corporate spheres.

In the years to come, the Department of Liberal Arts seeks to become a centre for research and excellence where the pressing concerns and developments in the field of humanities and social sciences are studied and disseminated in the local, national, and global contexts. It aims to build inter-institutional ties and collaborations of far-reaching impact by extending its expertise and spearheading research initiatives.
