School Profile

Our  Philosophy

At the School of Humanities and Social Sciences we believe that our students should be provided with the knowledge and the set of skills that may enable them to face the difficulties, but also the opportunities, which they will meet after graduation.  In particular, we aspire to train students to think critically, communicate effectively, and act ethically.  These, we are convinced, are some of the fundamental abilities a student should master in preparation for any career and a lifetime of productive citizenship.

Our Students

In the six Departments of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences we have more than twelve hundred Cypriot and international students who are about equally divided among undergraduate and graduate programmes.

Our Faculty

Our students are taught by seventy-five internationally recruited faculty. You can see more information about their qualifications, research interests and publications here.

Our Departments

The School offers a wide range of programmes with the aim of offering students a well-rounded education.  The programs are organised in six Departments.

Each Department offers a variety of programmes and specialisations which are interrelated, so that students have the opportunity to combine courses within the Department, from other Departments of the School, and even from other Schools, according to their interests and aptitudes.
