Applied Social Sciences


The Faculty offers programmes in the social sciences. While the programmes offered are applied in nature, they are not restricted to just a single discipline but integrated with other disciplines to provide broad-based learning experiences. Although learners will specialise in a particular field of study, they are also exposed to other basic cross-disciplinary knowledge in the humanities and social studies.

This enables graduates to effectively handle reallife problems. The Faculty is committed in enhancing the knowledge and methodology of the social sciences relevant to all aspects of life even for those pursuing courses in science and technology.
