Faculty of Social Sciences


About the Faculty

The Faculty of 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 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.
