Humanities are the non-technical stream of education that helps in learning the world’s history, cultures, art forms, literature, foreign languages, psychology, etc. Just like technical subjects, these subjects are equally important to study to know about our own history, how it all began and how it changed with time. Humanities education develops a creative mind and allows students to think out of the box to understand various aspects of it.
Dr C.V. Raman University of Bihar recognizes the importance of non-technical education in human lives to establish an excellent arts college in Patna.
