I am happy that you are here!
I am assuming that you are interested to know more about our philosophy of liberal arts and science education and how we are organized as a school. I am also assuming that most of you are young and exploring the place of your next learning adventure. I am always happy to connect with young learners. In fact, your dreams ultimately shape the world of tomorrow. For you to dream for a better world, you must first come out of the orthodoxies of my generation. How do we do it? Start asking questions without thinking about a preferred answer. Unconditional open-minded questioning with humility. This is the basis of our learning philosophy at Thapar School of Liberal Arts and Sciences (TSLAS).
We are a group of dreamers and learners. Both our students and colleagues come from diverse backgrounds with respect to their country or region of birth, where they have studied, and what they have studied. We are diverse in every possible way and that reflects in the way we teach, research, and engage our students.
We are on a journey creating new ideas, training minds, challenging thoughts, and dreaming beyond possibilities. Our goal is to develop passionate leaders for defining and building the new India and ultimately the new world of our dreams. We dream of the new India to be a model state grounded in the ethos of sustainability and inclusiveness. The right place for a great nation and a model for every institution in the world.
We are truly a school of dreamers and independent thinkers. We understand the power of open-minded and courageous thinking. We are constantly pushing boundaries and stretching limits when designing pedagogies and reimagining curricula. At TSLAS, first and foremost, we take our students through a journey of self-discovery grounded in a set of well-crafted foundation courses. In addition, we offer many majors and minors selected from a broad spectrum of disciplines. We invite you to be part of our school to be the architects and builders of a unique place of learning embedded in our cultural realities and the contemporary aspirations of young India.
Above all, we power our passion for excellence with the help of a group of dedicated teachers drawn from all over the world. In addition, we are frequented by an impressive list of scholars and teachers from across the world. Through the dedication, creativity, and hard work of our students, faculty, and all our supporting staff we have created an extraordinary learning environment for all those courageous young minds who are willing to live up to their dreams.
We invite you to visit our school and experience our passion for excellence and our commitment to creating an innovative learning community!
