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 endeavour 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.
