About The Theme

Myths are ancient cultural narratives that delve into the mysteries of existence and humanity’s origins. Featuring gods, heroes and cosmic struggles, myths convey values and collective wisdom. These stories serve as cultural cornerstones, passing down traditions and guiding principles. Yet, myths can also be misinterpreted or distorted over time. To understand their relevance, ongoing dialogues are crucial, as perspectives evolve with each generation. Platforms like Team Talk provide spaces for students to explore myths, extracting timeless lessons that enrich our understanding of the past and present.

About The College

Al Shifa College of Arts and Science is a young Higher Education Institution started off in 2020. Within one year of its commencement, the college has made its mark in the higher education sector with student centric activities, collaborations with reputed institutions, add on courses, and all-round support to students in building a worthy career in their respective fields. We aspire to cross the benchmark we have set in other aspects by providing a great exposure to students in academic research too

One such initiative, launched as part of World Environment Day, 2021 in association with the Nature Club of the College, is the Invited Student Talk Series (ISTS). This series has been a tremendous success, completing two fruitful years with 43 invited student talks to date. Building on this, we have announced a new addition to our programme: the Invited Scholar Talk Series which features PhD scholars as speakers. The Centre for Development of English Language Skills (CDELS) under the Department of English runs extension, outreach and professional training programmes for the students, faculty and the public.
