Message from Dean
Faculty of Social Sciences,
“In The Name of
Allah, the Most Gracious and Merciful”
The faculty of Social Sciences is playing dynamic role to
uplift the academics of the University of Balochistan. The
objective of the faculty is to dispense the knowledge which
enable the students to analyse the society and culture,
laws, cognitions and values. It also helpful to provide
managerial skill. The discipline of Political Science
teaches Leadership, Fundamental Rights, Comparative
Political Systems and development Studies.
The development of social science subfields became very
quantitative in methodology. The interdisciplinary and
cross-disciplinary nature of scientific inquiry into human
behavior and social and environmental factors affecting it
made many of the natural sciences interested in some aspects
of social science methodology.
Significant contributions to the social sciences were made
in Medieval Islamic civilization. Alberuni wrote detailed
comparative studies on the anthropology of peoples,
religions and cultures in the Middle east, Mediterranean and
South Asia. Ibn Khuldoon worked in areas of demography,
historiography, and the philosophy of history, sociology,
and economics. His great work is Muqaddimah in this regard.
The Faculty of Social Sciences is promoting the research
culture in the University. The Students are getting MPhil/Ph.D.
degrees regularly from different disciplines. The faculty is
comprised of Five Departments, Three Centres and University
law College. The Learned faculty Members and supporting
Staff is working hard day and night.
In the end, I am very much thankful to the Worthy Vice
Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Javeid Iqbal. University of
Balochistan for his constant support to enhance the
potential of the faculty of Social Sciences.
With Best Regards.
Prof. Dr. Naheed Anjum Chushti
