Welcome to the Department of Social Sciences at the Technical University of Mombasa.
I am immensely proud of our department and its critical contributions to the overall mission of TUM, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the National Vision 2030. The department has evolved over the years from offering only certificate and diploma courses to one of the pioneer departments offering advanced training leading to masters and doctorate degrees in development studies. The department has 12 full-time faculty and a number of part-time teaching staff who contribute to the effective teaching of our courses at different levels. Our research engagement is unmatched in the university with members of staff engaging in several research collaborations locally and abroad. The department embodies the University’s central mission of academic excellence and research and the main mission of the department is to train community and development workers who will contribute to different aspects of social and economic development of our communities. I trust that this site will provide valuable information about our programs, staff and research activities.
