Silver Oak College of Humanities and Social Science (SOCHSS) was established in the year 2019. Silver Oak
University (SOU) has made an attempt to look forward for bridging the gap between the academic
degree and the corporate industry requirements and enable students to achieve excellence in
every aspect of life.. The Bachelor of Arts programme with a variety of subject combinations
gives to our students the best opportunities for learning through curricular as well as
extra-curricular activities. The objective is to impart theoretical knowledge blended with
practical experience. We guide and encourage our students to gain a professional touch
Language is one of the most powerful communication tools available to an
individual. With globalization, professionals having proficiency in more than one language are
career-wise, on an advantageous position.
Master of Arts programme is a 2-year postgraduate exhaustive course. It gives
students an in-depth knowledge of the various subjects of arts and humanities. This programme
offers a number of diverse benefits ranging from enhanced career prospects to improved
problem-solving and decision-making skills. Students' valuable transferable skills such as
critical thinking, research skills and time management will be in demand in many areas of
business. It lays an excellent foundation for further study or research at doctoral level, as
well as a respected qualification in its own right.
We provide students with an immersive, collaborative, and inspiring environment
where they can develop a broadly informed, highly disciplined intellect that will help them be
successful in whatever work they finally choose. Our students graduate with the values and
knowledge they need to pursue meaningful work, find passion in life-long learning, and lead
successful and purposeful lives.
We encourage our students to explore the academic landscapes, venturing into
unfamiliar fields of knowledge and perhaps, discovering new passion that will take them in a
different direction altogether. Along the way, faculty members help guide them, and fellow
students offer diverse perspectives that can shed new light on the path.
With the motive to nurture students, we tap the spirit of inquiry and prepare
them to become global citizens
