Description:

AKU-Faculty of Arts and Sciences

Aga Khan University (AKU), based in Karachi, is in the process of creating a Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS).

AKU has established an international reputation for innovation and rigour in medical, nursing and teacher education at both undergraduate and graduate levels and in its developmental and training work for schools, including a very successful Master's programme. It currently operates on 11 campuses in Pakistan, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Egypt and the United Kingdom, and has programmes in Syria and Afghanistan.

Early in the next decade, AKU will open a residential Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) that will provide a general education curriculum at both undergraduate and graduate levels. It will develop a new breed of leaders, in government and business, who are equipped with critical-thinking and problem-solving capabilities, and a global outlook.

This new campus, to be located on 1,100 acres on the outskirts of Karachi, will offer a range of undergraduate and graduate courses, from archeology to quantum physics, from music to South Asian history. In the first phase, FAS will enroll 1,500 undergraduate and 100 postgraduate students. Undergraduates will receive an education which encompasses the natural and social sciences, alongside the humanities. Teaching will be student-centred and will draw on the latest tools of information technology. Students will begin with a broad core curriculum and then proceed to a single or dual area of concentration for advanced work. Special encouragement will be given to interdisciplinary work.

A new campus in East Africa will serve as AKU'S principal site for the region and will support existing nursing and medical education programmes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The campus will serve the University's planned academic programmes in the liberal arts in East Africa. Students from all over Africa and beyond are expected to enroll. These developments would be in addition to the already significant investments in medical education planned for the Nairobi campus.

Expansion at these two new main campuses is expected to double the student body and triple the size of the overall physical campus.

The University is in the process of developing institutional strategies for a number of new graduate disciplines which will be located either in Karachi or in East Africa. These are likely to include Architecture and Human Settlement; Government, Civil Society and Public Policy; Media and Communications; Leisure and Tourism; and Education and Human Development.

The Aga Khan University Faculty of Arts and Sciences Master Plan establishes a framework for a new campus on arid scrubland 30 kilometers outside Karachi, Pakistan, in a zone designated as Education City by the Sindh provincial government. Designed for an initial student body of 1,600, this campus is planned to support 10,000 students and the full spectrum of graduate degrees and professional schools. The campus morphology is based on historic Islamic city form and establishes a continuum of experience, from the courtyard to the veranda to the building interior. Adjacent land holdings of 500 acres will also be developed as a University village. Source



KARACHI: The Aga Khan University has won an international award for the master plan of its new Faculty of Arts and Sciences campus to be built in Education City, 30 km outside Karachi.

An announcement on Monday said that the Society for College and University Planning and the American Institute of Architecture presented the Honor award for excellence in planning for a new campus to AKU and its architects Payette Associates, at their annual conference in Montreal, Canada, last week.

The university’s new Faculty of Arts and Sciences campus will be a major component of Education City, a regional development of schools and institutes that will eventually cover 8,000 acres.
