The social sciences cover a wide array of complex issues and disciplines from a number of different frames of reference.

The study of social sciences enables us to acquire more knowledge and help us to know the mystery of society. It provides an understanding of the world for informed decision making and policy, ensuring the maintenance and functioning of a stable society through an understanding of governance and institutions of civil society.

Universities play a key role by providing social sciences courses which educate graduates in each field of study within the various departments of social sciences. Graduates of S3H are prepared with a view to developing and implementing socio-economic policies appropriate to meet the needs for an ever-changing world.
