Dean's Welcome Message

You are welcome to one of the best Faculties of the College of Education Studies, University of Cape Coast. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Education was created in 2016 when the College of Education Studies became a three-tier College. It was initially proposed to be made up of three departments: Department of Arts Education, Department of Social Sciences Education and Department of Business Education.

However, the Department of Social Sciences Education and the Department of Business Education were merged into what is known presently as the Department of Business and Social Sciences Education. This has become necessary for the fact that the number of Lecturers in the Department of Business Education was inadequate to man an academic department. Nonetheless, the good news is that currently the department has recruited more Lecturers to meet the requirement for the creation of an independent academic department. We are hopeful that this will happen in the near future.

The Faculty can boast of four graduate programmes run in regular and sandwich modes. They are:

M.Ed /Mphil/PhD (Arts Education)
M.Ed /Mphil/PhD (Management Education)
M.Ed /Mphil/PhD  (Accounting Education)
M.Ed /Mphil/PhD (Economics Education)
PhD. (English Language Education)

There are five competitive undergraduate programmes, namely:

B.Ed.  Arts
B.Ed.  Social Studies
B. Ed   Social Sciences
B.Ed.  Management
B.Ed.  Accounting

Please refer to the various departments for detailed information. Moreover, the Faculty revises its programmes periodically. Two new programmes, Political Studies and Information and Library Studies will be introduced in the Faculty soon.

Thank you very much for the interest expressed in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Education.

Merci et bienvenue.
