"The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think."

Albert Einstein


WELCOME to the Faculty of Arts and Social Science (FAS) website where information meets convenience. All there is to know about the faculty is now just a click away. You can:

         find out more about the courses that we offer

         familiarize yourself with the organizational structure

         download or refer to necessary documents

         keep yourself updated with the latest happenings as well as researches

         and many more

Here in FAS, knowledge pertaining to the field of Arts and Social Science is not only shared, but created as a result of the collective effort of staff and students alike. With academic staff hailing from a rich variety of disciplines, we believe that students will be inspired to not only learn diligently, but perhaps one day become an inspiration themselves as well to others.

In line with UTAR's aspiration of providing holistic education to the nation, FAS emphasizes on character building besides academic performance. Students are encouraged to reach out to the community and make useful contributions, with hope that such exposure would mould them in becoming better persons.  

Through such wholesome measures, the following philosophies adopted by UTAR can definitely be realized:

         Virtue and Morality

         Knowledge and Intellect

         Physical and Mental Health

         Sociality and Humanitarianism

         Aesthetics and Harmony

         Creativity and Innovation

Let us walk together on the journey of lifelong learning and unearth the treasures of knowledge and wisdom. Feel free to get in touch with us should you have any inquiry and we will try our best to assist you.
