Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities

Developing the skills for success in a diverse world

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences plays an essential role in every student’s experience Uganda. Through the diverse areas of study the Faculty offers, students develop valuable communication skills, explore culture and history, and learn to critically examine their society and the world. Students have opportunities to study abroad, to research human behavior in laboratory settings, and to work on the production of films, television and radio shows, a literary journal, and a campus newspaper. Our highly accomplished faculty include scholars with international reputations for research, award-winning writers, and skilled teachers with years of practical professional experience.


The Faculty of the Humanities and Social Sciences covers a wide range of disciplines with differing methodologies, from highly quantitative analysis of ‘big data’ to ethnography and the analysis of the material culture and thought of past societies.  The geographical range is equally broad, with specialist centres in Latin America, Africa and South Asia, as well as Development Studies and the specialists within each Department or Faculty. 


Each Department and Faculty has its own well developed research profile, but increasingly we are cooperating across disciplinary boundaries within the College and with colleagues in other Colleges.  We are fortunate in the provision of research funds within the College from the Philomathia Foundation, which is sponsoring a number of projects and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) acts as a catalyst and facilitator.  The College is participating in university-wide Strategic Research Initiatives such as public health, global food security, energy and conservation which brings the insights of social sciences to bear on some of the major issues facing the world today.


East Africa is Africa’s upcoming centres for science, technology and medicine, and the social sciences are playing an increasingly important role in understanding the social, political and economic contexts.
