The first Persian online university for Social Sciences and Humanities

Introduction

Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities – also known as Iran Academia – started in 2012 due to
violations of the Right to Education, academic freedom, and lack of University autonomy in Social Sciences in Iran. The institution is based in The Netherlands and connects its faculty and staff across an extensive global network with a mission to encourage critical thinking and build capacity for Iran’s
youth by increasing access to uncensored knowledge.

Services

We aim to surpass censorship and offer educational services, especially to those who have been deprived of impartial and quality education. We do this by providing excellent learning opportunities, free of charge, through four different platforms:

Academia

(The graduate school)

Academix

(Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs))

Agora

(Educational Multimedia Platform)

University Press

(Publishing House for Academic Journals and Books)

International Honorary Board

We are greatly supported and advised by a distinguished group of international scholars.
