The program in Persian from Government College University Faisalabad's mission is to revive the glory of Persian language which is a store house of immense literary and philosophical literature. Knowledge of Persian would help to learn Turkish, Arabic, Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi, Pashto, Blochi, and Hindi and pursue a variety of exciting careers in Government, International business or education. 


The Department would play a vital role in promoting and spreading Persian language which can act as a bridge between two countries Pakistan and Iran.  The Persian program is offered at The Government College University Faisalabad.


Persian is spoken by 120 million people not just in Iran, but also in Afghanistan and Central Asia. Learning Persian language is not only a source of developing our relations with Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and other Persian regional countries but also helps in fully understanding Urdu language, literature and Allama Iqbal’s poetry.
