Values, Vision and Mission

As a Department that is extensively involved with first year students it is our objective to make all students joining the Faculty feel at home. We strive to make the transition from school to university study as smooth as possible and to lay a sound foundation upon which the student can build throughout their academic career.

As an Academic Department we strive towards critical, creative and independent thought and we remind ourselves and our students to be aware of, and to address, the social context and the demands of poverty, sexual violence and unequal power relations.
