Dr. Azra Parveen
Welcome to the Department of Urdu at The Women University Multan. We as a department seek to create and share knowledge of Urdu literature and linguistics. We do this to promote ethical and competent students who are able to adapt and lead in this rapidly changing world. We pursue high ideals in our research and teachings by focusing on two major traditions of Urdu: Literature and Linguistics. We aim to shed light on society and human conditions through critically examining Urdu literature. Further we aim to promote Urdu as a language and its practical application in different spheres of life. These two traditions come under one roof in the department of Urdu which seeks to understand society and human relations and Urdu language via interpretive research methods. I am proud on the way we as a department work both individually and collectively to generate quality research and to share knowledge which enables our students to become competent and fulfilled professionals. I invite you to look over these webpages in order to know about the programs offered in the department.
