For the last 156 years, we have pursued, nurtured and celebrated excellence in a wide variety of disciplines. It is no coincidence that our motto “Courage to Know” is a call to students and staff members alike to realize their fullest potential and the University’s mission
The programme in Physical Education & Sport Sciences is an essential need of Pakistan in the current socio-political scenario. The crumbling social and moral fabric of the country is direly in need of the culture of peace and harmony. The aggression and violence riddled society may find some relief in sports and physical activity. The program will indirectly contribute to the promotion of tolerance and mutual co-existence in the society.
The department provides students with knowledge, skills and behaviors to enable them to achieve a degree of autonomy in developing and maintaining their physical, mental, social and emotional health. This domain focuses on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and physical activity in the lives of individuals and groups in our society. This domain is unique in having the potential to impact on the physical, social, emotional and mental health of the students. It promotes the potential for lifelong participation in physical activity through the development of motor skills and movement competence, health-related physical fitness and sport education. Engaging in physical activity, games, sport and outdoor recreation contributes to a sense of community and social connectedness. These are vital components of improved well being.
