Faculty of Languages and Literature[edit]

The faculty was established in 1984 under the administration of Nangarhar University. In that time, only the Pashtu Department was available, with six lecturers, nominated by the Faculty of Pashtu Language and Literature. Later on, the Russian Department was established, but after a short period of time, due to the lack of student numbers in the department, it wasclosed.

  • The Arabic Department was established in 1993. From 1992 there were changes in the curriculum of the Pashtu Department such as the addition of English and Islamic subjects instead of Russian Language, Academic sociology and Political economics in addition to Pashtu and English Departments.
  • The Dari Department was established in 2003.
  • The Hindi Department was established in 2006.
  • The German Department was established in 2014.
  • The Master program in Pashtu Language was launched in 2014.

When other departments such as Arabic, English, Dari and Hindi department were added to the faculty the faculty name was changed from Faculty of Pashtu and Literature to the Faculty of Languages and Literature. In 2015 the faculty had 1494 students studying in all six departments, 1403 are male and 91 female students. There are 54 permanent professional lecturers.
