According to me, liberal education lies above all other disciplines or forms of education. Due to the knowledge of various subjects and the high exposure provided by School Of Liberal Studies, the students undoubtedly stand apart from their counterparts in other colleges. In future, they would not only have the ability to understand their work, but they would also be able to perceive and interpret their environmental cues very efficiently. They are the torch
bearers, visionaries and leaders of the future. Organizations need them.

SLS offers cutting edge programs focused on exposure and exploration for the students which is the need of the hour. Certainly industries require technical people, however for strategic and long term sustainable growth of any organization; they need leaders and creative thinkers who are able to think beyond the box. Liberal Studies help students obtain such competencies. India needs strategic thinkers, visionaries and motivating leaders. An employee of liberal study back-ground would be the end of search for Indian employers certainly.

“Every great art must be supplemented by leisurely discussion, by stargazing, if you will, about the nature of things”. These words of Plato are practiced at School of Liberal Studies at PDPU. We are an unconventional and unusual program and we therefore attract students who are driven to follow their passion and willing to tread upon the ‘road less taken’. Enrolling young scholars from different social and economical backgrounds has enriched the cosmopolitan culture and ambience of the campus. Students, who join SLS, grow to become intellectually curious and not merely bookish individuals. Students at SLS, devote their college years to reading and discussing what Matthew Arnold called “the best that has been thought and said,” and they apply this knowledge during the internships that they undertake and in day to day interactions. The multi - disciplinary approach to knowledge makes our students to be aware, informed and curious citizens.

The School of Liberal Studies program is planned, not to train or provide capability in any narrowly defined field of study, but to allow students to discover more about themselves and the world, and to investigate new areas of knowledge and new ways of thinking. Such outcomes, while significant to personal and intellectual growth and
enhancement, are also progressively more in demand among employers who seek ingenious and curious minds with an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge and familiarity with the world’s diversity of thoughts and cultures.
