Institute of Advanced Communication, Education and Research (IACER) was established in February 2001 with the aim of providing advanced research degrees in the Humanities and Social Sciences, with English Studies at the heart of the academic experience.

We offer interdisciplinary course that blend traditional inquires with contemporary issues, and students are asked to engage not only with literary texts but also with immediate and imminent socio-political concerns like globalization, conflict transformations, gender relations, and the environment. Our small class sizes ensure that students get individualized attention in this pursuit, and seminars and guests lectures facilitated by professors from all around the globe expose students to existing debates in world education.

IACER is creative and invigorating space where contemporary issues in the Arts and Social Sciences are debated in and out of classroom - join us in our pursuit of academic excellence
