Welcome to School of Arts and Social Sciences
The School which is a baby of the former Advanced Teachers’ College now Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education with nine departments. The present School of Languages used to be part of the School until 1992.
Our faculty brings together scholars and students from across an extraordinary range of academic disciplines in a learning community that is dedicated to the discovery and enrichment of the arts, humanities and social sciences. We are artists, entrepreneurs, scholars and practitioners working on the pleasures and challenges of our times.
Each year we welcome more than five thousand bright and dedicated students onto our degree programmes. Our teaching is recognised to be amongst the very best in the country, and we are proud of our contribution towards good learning advancements every year.
Our students know that strong ideals must be coupled with excellence in practice. Surrey’s professional training year gives students the opportunity to work outside the School, but as part of their programme of study. Our approach to learning sees students apply their theoretical learning to current world problems. We take great pride in our commitment to our students and from their achievements. Our alumni hold senior positions across the world and we are proud of the contribution they make to society.
The Arts and Social Science disciplines are out to explore the basic questions concerning man, his society and his relationship with the metaphysical world. In essence, the School of Arts and Social Sciences seek to draw the teacher and his students into a mutual dialogue about their collective realities.
