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.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences hosts 18 departments and several research centres that represent three broad disciplinary groups, namely Arts, Languages and Social Sciences.
