“A university is not a service station. Neither is it a political society, nor a meeting place for political societies. With all its limitations and failures, and they are invariably many, it is the best and most benign side of our society insofar as that society aims to cherish the human mind.”
-Richard Hofstadter, Professor of American History, Columbia University.

Faculty of Social Sciences(FoSS) is not mere an academic discipline at Center for Peace Studies,British American University but is concerned with society and the relationships among individuals within a society, which often rely  on empirical ,textual or human approaches.

The Faculty of Social Sciences (FoSS) will contribute to the national and international knowledge development through strengthening and further developing the professional quality of its research and teaching activities. Faculty of  Social Sciences cultivates critical and creative thinking skills, allowing students to better develop their oral and written abililies. With an emphasis on helping students to integrate their experiences and creativity with research and observation, FoSS encourages students to integrate pragmatic mastery with abstract reasoning.

Humanities courses are essential to the development of scientists who can communicate across academic disciplines and understand the cultural and political conditions that affect their work. Professors refine the communication and analytical skills that will compliment the knowledge they gain within the scientific curriculum. Our educational programs include programs at several bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. level divided in seven major Departments. The educational programs cover most fields of education science. Research at the Faculty represents a unique combination of Social Sciences, Humanities, Media Studies, Economics,Psychology,Sociology,Public Administration and Education Sciences, enabling an interesting interdisciplinary collaboration.
