School of Humanities and Social Sciences

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences has three Departments, namely, Development Studies, Governance and Public Administration and Fine Arts. Each of these Departments offers a Degree Programme.

We offer first degrees in each of the Departments but for Development Studies we also offer two Masters Degree programmes in Development Studies and, in Trade, Development and International Relations. We are preparing programmes at Masters Level in the other two Departments of Fine Arts and Governance and Public Administration.

On completion, graduates from the Department of Fine Arts find jobs in many areas: They can start their own companies as designers; they can be employed by textile companies as designers; they can join the Ministry of Education as teachers of Art; they can have their own Studios and sell their artworks. They can go for Masters Degrees and come and lecture at a university like Zambian Open University, the only university in Zambia offering a degree in Fine Arts.
