I welcome you to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences website page. Whether you are a parent, guardian, future or current student, or potential partner institution, we hope you will explore the many web-pages which present information on the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and get to know us better and why we are regarded as among the best in Africa.
Here you will discover why the faculty is a key institution in Namibia and the Southern Africa sub-region in teaching and learning, research and community engagement in the human and social sciences. As one of the largest faculty at the University of Namibia, we strive to drive the agenda of this young and vibrant institution to become one of the top universities in Africa. Our agenda as a faculty is to investigate how the humanities and social sciences can facilitate the transformation of society in a newly independent African country, such as Namibia, within the framework of the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC).
Our aim is to develop our students to become creative, inquisitive and learned individuals in their subject of choice and to equip and prepare them for a rapidly changing world. Our graduates are well prepared to serve the community both locally and internationally. It is also our aim to empower all faculty members to develop to their fullest potential as academics and researchers in order to guide and mentor students and fulfil the mission of the university.
We have tried to present as much information as possible but we are aware of the limitations of this form of communication in providing all the information and answering all the questions you may have. We hope you will use the email address provided as well as participate in our numerous faculty activities to familiarise you with what the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences has to offer.
