Thank you for visiting the website of the Department of Humanities in the University of Embu. The Department was established in 2017 as one of the two departments in the School of Education and Social Sciences. It has been growing steadily both in student numbers and faculty. The Department’s vision is to produce all rounded and competent graduates who will integrate well in the community and become role models to the younger generation as they endeavor to contribute towards nation building. Currently, the Department offers a postgraduate programme leading to a degree in Master of Arts in Linguistics, as well as undergraduate and Diploma programmes in Library and Information Science as well as Criminology and Security Studies. Additionally, the Department offers Diploma programmes in Corporate Communications, Social Work and Community Development, and Hospitality and Tourism Management. Furthermore, the Department services other Departments in the University in languages and social science subjects.
The Department is also at an advanced stage of launching four additional postgraduate programs; namely Master of Arts in Communication, Master of Arts in Geography, Master of Arts in Religious Studies, and Master of Arts in History and Political Science.
