Welcome to Rangsit Journal of Arts and Sciences

In this age of globalization the quality of a university’s degree programmes is looming to be of greater importance than in times past-especially from the point of view of students-and, indeed, society.

Rangsit University, as a private university in Thailand, is a case in point.  The President, Dr. Arthit Ourairat, is always very clear about the importance of quality.  At his annual address to faculty and staff he invites all members to continue their work toward enhancing the quality of course offerings, of teaching, and of students’ welfare.  His dream is that Rangsit will one day soon be ranked in Asia’s top tier universities.
