Starting out with four faculties (Science, Education, Arts and Social Sciences, and AgriSciences), 503 students and 40 lecturing staff on 2 April 1918, SU today is home to 10 faculties, a vibrant and cosmopolitan community of more than 30 000 students and 3000 staff members, spread over five campuses.
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences provides a dynamic and interactive learning environment to its students focusing in particular on preparing our graduates for an ever-growing knowledge-based society and economy. Its research, teaching and learning, and community interaction focuses on the challenges of being human in a rapidly globalising world.
It is our goal to not only become the base for training in the humanities in particular the Arts, Languages and Social Sciences, but to provide teaching and research that is relevant to the region, country and continent, and is internationally competitive.
