Dear Students,

Welcome to the Department of Social Studies. This department is composed of four units and disciplinary areas, namely: Communication Studies, Psychology, Sociology and Social Work. Degrees offered by the Department of Social Studies channel students into different fields and careers in the public and private sectors and NGOs. These include journalism, teaching, social research and analysis, counselling, administration and social work, among others. Academic staff of the department are actively engaged in research in a number of areas and ensure high standards of teaching. Members of the department have also been involved as consultants in national projects on issues such as gender equality, domestic violence, street children, drug abuse and poverty among others.

We wish you a productive and enjoyable time as a student of the University of Mauritius.
