Introduction

Established in May 2005, the School of Education and Arts now known as School of Social Sciences and Humanities, was the successor to the Faculty of Educational Management and Technology (FEMT) that was setup earlier in 1999. The school offers doctoral, graduate and undergraduate degree programs aimed at preparing social scientists, professionals and educators for the uplift of society. The school actively collaborates with governmental and non-governmental organizations to meet national targets of research and development.

The School of Social Sciences and Humanities is committed to produce individuals who are capable of applying new knowledge to solve the social problems. All programs are capable of meeting the challenges of technology that relies heavily on the use of the computers, internet and social media.

The School encourages participants to re-conceptualize learning in a given context through critical thinking, cooperative learning and action research. It rewards research and originality. Interaction between teachers and students is a key ingredient of school's approach to education. Students are encouraged to write a journal that tracks their impressions of the learning environment and recommend improvements. Concerned teachers respond to these suggestions effectively.

The school arranges dialogues, debates and discussions over a wide range of topics covering social sector and current issues. Guest speakers are eminent professionals who are widely respected in their specialties. The discussions are often candid and conducted in a congenial atmosphere. Students are free to express their views on any social, academic or cultural issue.

The School of Social Sciences and Humanities has constituted the Boards of Studies (BoS) in its various disciplines that revise or update courses according to contemporary developments and indigenous needs. Each BoS comprises of distinguished scholars and academicians from the public and private sector.

The School of Social Sciences and Humanities holds conferences and seminars on social sector issues. On these forums academicians and researchers share their knowledge and experiences.

Most of the faculty is member of highly respected professional organizations. The Alumni of this school contribute positively both at national and international levels.
