It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Faculty of Humanities and Education. In deciding to study in our Faculty, you have chosen to place yourself within an academic community that deals with perhaps the most important questions that face us as human beings. As a Faculty, we endeavor to comprehend messages found in History, Psychology, Philosophy, Religion, Modern Languages (Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese-Mandarin), Cultural Studies, English Literature, Linguistics, Education, Cultural Studies, and Creative Arts. Disciplines within the Faculty provide you with a firm foundation that prepares you for life in a rapidly changing world.
Besides offering Bachelor’s degrees leading to Majors in the disciplines named above, we offer some Minors in several other disciplines including Music, Communications Studies, Cultural Studies, and Brazilian Studies. In addition, students planning to attend our campus will find a number of co-curricular options including Sports, Leadership Service, Debating, and Singing.

The Faculty of Humanities and Education is a place where students and scholars have excellent opportunities to advance knowledge, develop creativity, and discover solutions that address pressing questions of the past, present, and future. Our aim is to develop our students to become creative, inquisitive and learned individuals in their discipline of choice and to equip and prepare them for the challenges inherent in our dynamic environment. We prepare our graduates well 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 look forward to seeing and serving you.
