Admission requirements are the same as those of the University.
The main strength of the Faculty is the attractive courses it offers, most of which are heavily subscribed by both local and international students. Indeed, there is high demand for both graduate and undergraduate courses within the Faculty.
Graduate (including PhD) and undergraduate programmes are offered in all the departments, the Institute of Adult Education and the Institute of African Studies. Graduate courses are also mounted by the School of Communication Studies, Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) and Legon Centre for International Affairs (LECIA).
The Faculty’s required course for graduation is Basic Statistics which is offered at Level 200. Students majoring in Economics are, however, not required to take Basic Statistics because they offer Mathematics/Statistics for Economists in lieu of it.
The Faculty has a strategic plan. As part of the plan, the Faculty is to be transformed into a College with the Faculty of Arts to become the College of Arts and Social Studies. The advantage of a college is the more decentralized approach it offers to governance and academic programmes. This will enable the Faculty to deal with the emerging stiff competition from private universities offering attractive social science programmes.
