Department of Humanities & Social Sciences

Innovate. Achieve. Lead


The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) at BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus serves a unique purpose in an institute dedicated to the study and excellence of science and technology. We believe that engineering and science are by their nature humanistic and socially-derived enterprises. Therefore, a holistic science and technology education must include liberal arts, economics, social and behavioral sciences where students learn to combine the application of scientific principles with a humanist, moral and social understanding of the world.
The Department offers a diverse range of courses at the First Degree, Higher Degree and the Doctoral levels. The undergraduate courses seek to engender a practice of critical thinking and questioning, and sensitizes students to the broader social, cultural, economic, ethical issues that surround them. The courses at the Higher Degree level are advanced and aim at cultivating critical and analytical skills. The Department also offers a Higher Degree in Masters in Business Administration (MBA). The two-year MBA program aims to provide broad knowledge on all the contemporary areas of business management using case-based learning and simulations.
The HSS Department offers excellent opportunities and facilities for the pursuit of research and development. The Department faculty also guides projects, theses and dissertations at the First Degree and Higher Degree levels. We offer training programmes in the areas of Research Techniques and Data Analysis, Finance and Accounting, Presentation Skills, Interpersonal Skills, Leadership Skills, Group Discussion Skills, Business/Managerial Communication, as well as Effectiveness of Teaching. The Department also offers certificate and diploma courses in Management, Finance, English and other foreign languages.
