Short Description

<<Programme Video>>

The Department of Social and Behavioural Sciences prides itself on its long track record of offering quality education delivered by a multi-disciplinary team of faculty members. “Social and Behavioural Sciences” is the term used to describe the scientific studies of the thoughts, feelings and behaviours of humans and animals and their surrounded social systems in order to understand and resolve individual, social, and community issues. It includes the study of counselling, criminology, psychology, social work and sociology.

Social Work is a helping profession that applies knowledge from various disciplines of the social sciences to develop theories and practices. We set out to strengthen and provide support for individuals, families, groups and the community, in problem solving as well as in achieving growth and development.
