Message from the Dean

As we embark on a journey in which we carve out a new identity for ourselves as the Namibian University of Science and Technology, the Faculty of Human Sciences shapeshifts into a new avatar. This a unique faculty with a strong emphasis on communication and social sciences building a foundation to hold the edifice of our university. The Faculty is the soul of the university and the heartbeat of our students, because without language and communication, life is meaningless.
