School of Social Sciences


Welcome to the School of Social Sciences!

The School is composed of six disciplines: Psychology, Social Work, History, Sociology, Gender Studies, and  Policing.We aim for research and teaching excellence in each of these disciplines. We have a great team of scholars and support staff who come from all over  the Pacific  and beyond. Our team is expanding, and every year new research and teaching stars are arriving to join. 

Our goal is  to produce research that is both theoretically strong and practically focused, and which addresses important social issues in the Pacific Region. Among other topics our scholars and postgraduate students examine issues  such as sexual prejudice, migration, non-communicable diseases, domestic violence, and bias against minority cultures. In addition to our research achievements, the School has an exemplary teaching record. Our primary goal  in teaching is to create a learning environment that ensures each and every student reaches their full potential. In addition to our undergraduate offerings  the School has several postgraduate programs, and accepts Masters and PhD candidates. 

The  School  of Social Sciences is located in the CELT building (building 2A on the campus map)
