The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences has 18 departments that represent three broad disciplinary groups, namely Arts, Languages and Social Sciences, and has 10 centres.
In 2014, we had 3 347 registered undergraduate students, 1 485 postgraduate students and 385 special students (these are students who are enrolled only for a module and not a degree). Our staff component consists of 183 academic and 94 support staff members. The Faculty places immense value on creating a space for a diversity of people and ideas to flourish as this also help us to further develop the various research fields in our environment. We therefore make a concerted effort to employ staff and admit students to our Faculty who contribute to our goal of creating a diverse environment where all forms of knowledge can develop and prosper.
