What Our Students Say

Salil Subedi (M.Phil. Batch of 2010)

Working closely with teachers and classmates from varying disciplines has inspired me to explore different ideas and thoughts. The interdisciplinary design of the courses, from Green Studies to International Relations and Conflict Resolution, Philosophy to Contemporary Cultural Studies, is making my experience of M.Phil study diverse and enriching. It is the role of humanities to interweave precision knowledge accumulated by science, for example facts about climate change, into the society through creative channels like literature, film and music, and I am grateful to be a part of that experience.

HIMA BISTA (M.Phil. Batch of 2010) no

Head of Human Resources, DFID Nepal My dreams of entering into the artistic and cultural practices of literature and art and developing my practice of HR are beautifully and creatively enhanced by the intrinsic design of the M.Phil program, which is a perfect blend of the humanities and management. This experience is opening possibilities for me to shift to humanities, an area highly undermined in present times even though it has great significance and presence in our lives, and is a must for positive social, political and cultural change.

GAURAV LAMICHHANE ( M.A. Batch of 2008 ) no

Teacher of English, Rato Bangala IACER has been my intellectual abode since I returned from the US in 2008. The courses offered here are modeled with an ethos of a liberal arts curriculum, where students are trained in multiple cross-disciplines. It is quite fascinating to engage in discussions ranging from Native American dream visions to Wordsworth’s poetry to the issues of environmental consciousness raised in Cameron’s movie Avatar under the same roof. I have grown so much in the four semesters of MA at IACER – it would have been impossible for me to achieve that level of maturity elsewhere.
