Dean’s Welcome Statement
Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences “Where Theory Meets Real Life”!
The decision to study at MSU is one of the decisions you have ever made in your life. In joining the Faculty of Social Sciences you have chosen to be a part of a vibrant, innovative and multicultural community where innovation and diversity are prioritized. The Faculty of Social Sciences prepares students for critical citizenship in a rapidly changing world that demands versatility and creativity rather than mere training.
Personal development and academic inspiration is guaranteed. We emphasise on programmes that develop students into global-minded citizens with the skills to tackle challenges of globalization. Our education is based on theory and real-life application as we stress the importance of scientific research in identifying, analysing and explaining phenomena and predicting the future in finding realistic solutions.
We assure you of the following:
Growth – Social Sciences will enable one to be analytical, innovative, creative, problem solver and one who thinks outside the box.
Support – As a Faculty we take pride in the services we render when faced with any challenges whilst you are home away from home, our support staff will be able to assist you with information or refer you to the correct offices for assistance in addressing your problems.
I encourage you to utilise your time here to engage fully with the academic material, be open to learning from your lecturers and your peers and use every opportunity for networking so that you graduate from MSU a changed individual, equipped to make a difference in society unfazed by transition.
We look forward to the future with its challenges and difficulties; we hope to put the Faculty of Social Sciences on the global academic map to join the ranks of notable international academic institutions.
