The Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) will develop young people to become future leaders through a transformative education t​hat is endlessly challenging, stimulating and mind-opening – one that prepares graduates for innovative thought and consequential action.  

Our plan for FAS takes full advantage of the extraordinary opportunity to design a new undergraduate education from the ground up. We have drawn on the rich tradition of arts and sciences education while adapting it to a new context and infusing it with our distinctive values. We have thought carefully about the intellectual capacities and personal characteristics required of leaders, and how best to develop them, inside and outside the classroom. We believe the result is one of the most exciting developments in higher education in Pakistan in recent memory.
