Welcome Message

Dr Kristina Hinds, Head of DepartmentWelcome to the Department of Government, Sociology, Social Work and Psychology (GSSWP) where we continually strive to offer enriching and satisfying experiences.

2020 and 2021 have thrust many unexpected changes on all of us, altering the ways we live, work, study and interact with each other.

This multidisciplinary department is uniquely placed to reflect on, assess, and offer socially and environmentally conscious insights into these tectonic shifts. As ever, our offerings are infused with regional perspectives that are the hallmark of the UWI. Our experienced and energetic faculty members will open doors for our students to build on their knowledge, develop their competencies and to engage with our ever-changing world.

GSSWP’s competent administrative staff will support you along your UWI journey. As we increasingly return to a face-to-face environment, we do so while continuing to incorporate technology in ways that will enhance students’ experiences. My hope is that we will adapt well to our return to campus, even in this new and evolving reality. Once again, I offer you the warmest of welcomes to GSSWP!

Dr. Kristina Hinds
