The Faculty of the Social Sciences (formerly known as the Faculty of Social Science and Administration) was established in 1975 as one of the Foundation Faculties of the University. The Faculty became Faculty of Social Sciences with the establishment of Faculty of Management Sciences which was carved out of the old Faculty in 2001/2002 academic session. It is headed by the Dean and supported by the Deputy Dean and other administrative staff.
