Faculty of Social Sciences and Languages
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Languages had its beginning at the same time, when the University commissioned her study programs in 1996. The Faculty initially possessed two departments of studies i.e. the Department of Languages and the Department of Social Sciences and Languages. The third department of the faculty, the Department of English Language Teaching was initiated in 2004 while the fourth, the Department of Economics and Statistics commenced in 2009. The Faculty began its academic operations in November 1996 with the intake of students from the former Affiliated University College, who were permitted, with their Diplomas in English, to study for a degree after two years.
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Languages prepares students for professional careers, by providing them with a broad understanding of the humanistic tradition in combination with a sound knowledge of subjects in several disciplines. Our programme emphasizes the ability to apply this knowledge to problems and tasks in the contemporary world of work. We strive to develop students’ capacity for independent and critical thought, logical analysis, effective communication, and informed participation in teamwork. Therefore, the Bachelor of Arts programme integrates classroom work and students’ independent reading and writing with hands-on research and project work.
