From Plato to present-day educators are agreed that the life, strength and development of a nation is insured in its education, and the right to proper education is indispensable to its survival. This is the education that inculcates moral values while, at the same time, .cultivating good life and good citizenship. Such education must be both complete and generous as to enable a man or woman to perform justly, skillfully, and magnanimously in all the offices entrusted to him/her both private and public. Ever since its inception, and throughout its existence, the school of humanities and social sciences has been guided by the philosophy and conviction that the questing mind, creative and imaginative thinking as well as dedicated discipline and sense of duty best reflect and characterize successful and progressive educational system or process. Not only is the school dedicated to quality education and academic excellence, it also re-acts the conviction that humanistic disciplines are civil society’s driving engine, the key to its creativity, its diversity, its imagination, and hence its spontaneousness, human rights, democratic values, tolerance, pluralism, good governance, academic freedom and liberty. The school of Humanities and Social Sciences sees no better way to understand the lessons of the past and to conceptualize the future than through the humanities and social Sciences.
