Developing critical thinking (CT) has been widely seen as a fundamental and essential skill to meet 21st century educational goals. The changing conditions of the world do not permit to provide students with specific success formulas. Thus, it is necessary to instill into students the ability to think with open minds, to approach to their life challenges and joys by introducing CT skills in higher education. In this era of science and technology, the amount of information is massive. Students need guidance to analyze the information and effectively apply these CT skills to academic studies. For this research study 732 students from different disciplines wereselected in the sample. The researcherís self-developed CT skills test was used to assess the level of CT skills. Students of different disciplines were compared on CT skills toanalyze the arguments, make assumptions, deduct conclusions, draw inferences and interpret information. The research will have implications for thepolicy makers, educators and curriculum developers to incorporate CT skills in higher education in Pakistan.

Key words: Higher Education, Multi-discipline, Critical thinking Skills
