Welcome to the School of Arts and Social Sciences

The School of Arts and Social Sciences is one of the foundation Schools in the College. It was formerly known as the School of Arts until 1992/93 academic session, when the School of Languages was established as a separate school. Initially, the school of Arts and Social Sciences housed three departments. These are: Department of Geography, Department of History, and Department of Religious Studies. Although Social Studies was introduced during the 1992/1993 academic session but it operated as part of History Department. By 1993/1994 academic session, Social Studies Department started as a separate department. Also the Department of Economics which was established in 1992 existed as an integral part of Geography Department until 1997/98 session when it became a full fledged department. Again in 2011, the College started NCE programme in Music Education. With this, the School of Arts and Social Science now house six departments.

The School of Arts and Social Sciences has witnessed tremendous expansion in recent years. With the introduction of Social Studies and Economics Education in particular, students’ enrolment in the school has multiplied. This has also generated increase in human and physical resources.
