Arts & Social Science
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences

​The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences provides a dynamic and interactive learning environment to its students focusing in particular on preparing our graduates for an ever-growing knowledge-based society and economy. Its research, teaching and learning, and community interaction focuses on the challenges of being human in a rapidly globalising world. It is our goal to not only become the base for training in the humanities in particular the Arts, Languages and Social Sciences, but to provide teaching and research that is relevant to the region, country and continent, and is internationally competitive.
