The department of Liberal Arts at IIT Bhilai is a centre for the study of applied areas of Liberal Arts including but not limiting to Cultural Studies, Ethics, Economics, and Literature.
Liberal Arts at IIT Bhilai is formed from the realisation that true interdisciplinarity in the Indian context may best be achieved in an institution which has a firm grasp of applied sciences and social sciences. The freedom engendered by such proximity of applied science and social science helps create an atmosphere where research and pedagogy is undertaken revealing new areas which lie in between established disciplines.
The curriculum of the department encourages exploration across disciplines, while providing a central academic experience for students. Diverse range of subjects help students to question critically and think broadly, exploring the history of ideas and methodologies across the humanities and the arts. The department offers a bouquet of interesting and creative undergraduate courses.
