CERTAIN arts stream subjects have become important in view of the growing threat of terrorism, Higher Education Minister Datuk Dr Shafie Salleh said. 

He said social psychology, for example, was important in understanding terrorism as a phenomenon. 

Other important arts subjects included political economy, conflict resolution, strategic studies and policy analysis. 

He said this in reply to a question by Datuk Bung Moktar Radin (BN – Kinabatangan) who asked if there was a proposal to reduce the intake for subjects like literature and economics and concentrate on subjects like medicine, science and bio-science.
