Welcome to the Institute of Balochi Language and Culture

Introduction and Background

Welcome to the web resource of the Institute of Balochi Language and Culture, at the University of Turbat, Balochistan. The Faculty of Balochi, University of Turbat, is a centre of excellence for the study, teaching and research in Balochi literature and literary criticism. Our department is big enough to offer a wide range and variety of approaches to teaching and research. We offer an abundance of opportunities to learn and achieve mastery of the language and culture we study. Our programs are specially designed for highly motivated students with a passion for Balochi language, literature and culture, for imaginative approaches to these and for careful crossing of traditionally defined geographic, linguistic and disciplinary borders.

The variety of research interests and expertise held by our faculty is echoed in the diversity of backgrounds and academic interests among our students.

Providing opportunities to experience the living languages and cultures studied in our department is essential to our academic mission. Besides regular co-sponsorship of cultural events and performances on campus and elsewhere in the Area, we are currently publishing a Bi-Annual Research journal “MEERI”.

Further information about the department’s current membership, affiliations, activities, programs and curriculum are available throughout this site. We invite you to explore our pages thoroughly, and to contact us for help if you cannot find what you need here. 

We welcome your suggestions and support. Please help us continue to provide an excellent public education and knowledge based by providing your bit of suggestions to the department.
