School of Humanities and Social Sciences
The Schools offers a platform where research, teaching and creative activities go hand in hand to enable students to become engaged critical thinkers. The hallmark of research and teaching at SHSS lies in its multidisciplinary character. We provide opportunities for students to engage in research along with faculty. Through various teaching programs, the School aims to produce leaders for the 21st century who will push the boundaries of what is deemed possible and enlarge the visions of a just society through their work.

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Shiv Nadar University has a distinctive identity with seven diverse departments which are unified by the common themes of sustainability, data, and the local context.
Department of Design nurtures creative minds into outstanding design leaders with a passion for creating a difference in society. It is grounded in the philosophy of liberal education and intends to offer programs that provide students with holistic transdisciplinary education along with specialization in their specific areas of interest.
The department offers excellent training in Economics which is comparable to internationally acclaimed programs, and students are encouraged to be creative, analytical, and logical thinkers. This way of thinking enables them to offer innovative solutions to the problems they face in their surroundings.
As a department, we combine intellectual rigor with continuous innovation inside and outside the classroom. To that end, we offer a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses. Our excellent student-teacher ratio enables us to particularly pay close attention to how our students write—to help them approach both academic and creative writing with critical rigor and imaginative reach, and to address specialist as well as general audiences effectively.
We impart rigorous training in the methods and theoretical approaches in both history and archaeology from the undergraduate level and encourage students to think and write creatively. We feel the real challenge in teaching archaeology and history is to introduce students to the past in its totality, since both disciplines are concerned with vast sweeps of time and space.
The department combines a strong interest in bringing world historical developments in conversation with international relations theorizing. While conscious of developments in the Anglo-American mainstream, the department is inclined to pursue genuinely wide-ranging empirical and theoretically anchored accounts of international politics across diverse issue areas – development, security, and the environment.
